Stilwell breaks more records

From Victoria comes word three-time Canadian Paralympic gold medalist Michelle Stilwell from Nanoose Bay was busy on Sunday breaking the course record at the 2012 TC 10K.

The 37-year-old married mother of one was the first woman wheelchair racer across the finish line in a time of 30 minutes, 53 seconds, breaking the course record in her division and also posting a personal best time.

“I didn’t set my watch,” Mikey said after, adding “I just wanted to go out, push hard and not worry about time and look what happened.”

 

It was Stilwell’s fifth time racing the TC 10K. Kip Kangogo from Lethbridge was the overall winner of the race in a time of 29.51.
