Olympic trials and Zachary
Zachary’s Sean Burrell will compete in the 2021 US Olympic Trials in Eugene, Oregon. He enters practice as the second seed in the 400-meter hurdles after winning the event just a few months ago. The preliminary rounds start on June 24, the semi-finals on June 25, and the televised finals on NBC on June 26. The first three cash their ticket for Tokyo.
Former Northwestern Middle School swimmer Abby Dunford has qualified for the Canadian Olympic Swimming Trials and will compete in her main event, the 1,500-meter freestyle, on June 23. Abby trained in Las Vegas under the direction of United States National Team coach Ron Aitken and legendary Canadian coach. Dave Johnson.
More information and stories about these two amazing local athletes to come (I know their parents and the “kids”). Summer is generally slow for sport, but with two Zachary athletes having the potential to compete against the world at the Tokyo Olympics, it could be a fast Zachary sporting summer.
