This weekend we have 5 MadLab athletes competing at the CanWest Games at The Percy Perry Stadium in Port Coquitlam.
The CanWest Games is a competition for athletes of ALL levels. An event where athletes can see how they fare against their peers, but more important, an avenue to test their self-confidence and develop courage, determination and spirit.
It starts Friday night with a running event and then Saturday and Sunday all day.
We have one team of that has 4 of our MadLab Development Program athletes and also our apprentice Chloe is joining a team with friends.
Both Young & Chloe are doing their first competition! What an amazing experience it will be for these two! Hear are a few things our athletes have said:
1. What made you do this event?
Young - Poker told me to
Chloe - I wanted to prove to myself that I am a capable athlete and have something to strive towards
Alana - Dave, joking I generally love the idea of competing
2. What are you most excited about?
Young - Most excited to push myself to the edge for 7 events, I enjoy the pressure

3. What is your goal for the weekend?
Young - My goal is to do the best I can and figure out where I can get better
Chloe - It's just for fun and the experience with hopes to give me the courage to compete in higher levels down the road, or even some individual events
Alana - To get out of my comfort zone in a couple of the workouts, but to be smart and not hurt myself
