Carson Bradley has a knack for stepping up when it matters most. The recent Royal Canadian Legion Youth Track and Field Championships in Brandon, Manitoba were no exception.
A talented young sprinter with the Richmond Kajaks and entering his Grade 12 year at McMath secondary, the self-motivated Bradley earned a bronze medal in the men’s 400 metre race at the nationals in a time of 50.42 seconds. He then led Team BC’s 4x400 team to gold in the relay with a winning time of 3:26.16.
Prior to summer, Bradley also finished third in a very competitive field in the 400 metres at the provincial high school championships.
Kajaks’ teammate Iqam Bhandal also stood out at nationals. He finished third in the hammer throw with a best-throw of 56.47 metres.
