Cavani won gold in high jump with a leap of 1.40 metres and set a B.C. record en route to gold in long jump with a distance of 4.24 metres.

Dwight Liburd won gold in long jump at 6.27 metres, also a new B.C. best and nine centimetres short of the national record, as well as gold in the 60-metre dash at 7.28 and in the 200-metre sprint at 24.37.

A number of Kamloops athletes are preparing for the World Masters Athletic Outdoor Track and Field Championship, which will take place in Toronto beginning in late-July.
