RCTFC’s very own Coach Jason, was inducted into the BC Sports Hall of Fame today for his accomplishments in Para Athletics. As he was described in the ceremony, “one of Canada’s best ever Paralympic athletes,” Jason won a silver medal in the javelin (B3 class) at the 1992 Paralympics in Barcelona. In 1994, Jason won a gold medal in the pentathlon at the IPC World Athletics Championships in Berlin. The highlight of his career came in Atlanta in 1996 where he set a Paralympic record in the pentathlon. He also won a bronze medal in the discus (F12 class.) He went on to claim more silver medals in both the pentathlon and javelin at the 1996 IPC World Championships and competed at the Paralympics in Sydney in 2000. He won his final international athletics medal in 2003 in the discus at the IBSA World Championships in Quebec City.
It goes without saying that the RCTFC family offers its immense congratulations to Jason on his induction to the BC Sports Hall of Fame and we are proud to have such an accomplished athlete as a coach in our JD, as well as senior throws programs!
