The Ontario Racewalkers held their annual general meeting on January 18th, 2020. Stafford and Lily welcomed the athletes to their home for a lovely breakfast followed by a number of business items including awards.
This year’s awards go to….
Athlete of the year: Kris Kozell
Once again, Kris set a number of new Canadian Records. Most impressive was her selection as the Racewalker Athlete of the Year for the North American, Central and Caribbean Championships.
Most Improved Athlete: Nicky Slovitt
Nicky set a goal back in 2017 to break 36:00 for a 5km race. This year she did it! Her 2019 PB is now the greatly improved time of 32:58.84. She also managed to set a PB for every distance she raced in 2019. The most impressive event was her 8,801m for the One Hour walk early in the season which equates to 68 min. for 10k…another PB.
President’s Award: Dan Slovitt
This rarely given award goes to Dan Slovitt. He did so much to support the club this year. He worked the Waterfront Marathon (5:00am to 4:30pm). He also played a very important part in designing and building our new Web Site (ontarioracewalkers.ca) and spent many hours adding results and photos to the site. He does a great job of looking after the clubs photos too!
