This 5’8” runner won 4 gold medals in the Varsity Girls 200m, 400m, 800m, and Medley Relay team at the Milk Provincial Track and Field Championships this past weekend in Brandon. She also set a new provincial record in the 400m (54.9), and just missed the 800m record.  Coach Liam Francis states, “Victoria trains hard, and is extremely motivated to do her best every time she has a chance to run. It is amazing to watch her run, and every time she seems to do so, she gets faster”.
