Blake Leads Paces OAC At Jack Brow

Technical difficulties and a sudden rainstorm played havoc with the scheduling at the annual Jack Brow Memorial Track and Field Meet on Canada Day weekend.

But while the computer problems delayed some of the proceedings, they couldn’t slow down Kelowna’s Jerome Blake.

The 18-year-old sprinter continued his meteoric rise in Canadian track and field world with an upset victory in Sunday’s 100-metre senior division final and a silver-medal finish in the 200 metres a day earlier.

Blake, a native of Jamaica who arrived in Kelowna with his family in the spring of 2013, edged the favoured Keefer Joyce of Kelowna by 2/100th of a second in Sunday’s feature race with a clocking of 10.76 seconds.
