Mission skater qualifies for BC Winter Games

Arthur Barnsdale of the Mission Racers Speed Skating Club will be representing the Fraser Valley

Arthur Barnsdale of the Mission Racers Speed Skating Club will be representing the Fraser Valley at the BC Winter Games being held in February.

The Mission Racers hosted the Zone 3 BC Winter Games Qualifier during their annual Mission Interclub Skating Meet, held at the Mission Leisure Centre on Nov. 3.

The boys’ qualifying events came down to a nail-biting three-way tie which was broken by the skaters who had recorded the fastest 1500-metre time skated earlier that day.

Joining Barnsdale on the Zone 3 team are Mattias Daniels (Ridge Meadows) and Theory Havelka (Langley Blades).

The girls who will be representing the Zone 3 speed skating team will be Beth Smith (Langley Blades) and Mya Onos (Sardis Flyers).

The skaters will now prepare for the Games, which take place from Feb. 20-23 in Fort St. John.
