Parksville athlete cleans up at B.C. Summer Games
Another Oceanside athlete at the BC Summer Games had herself a golden performance, bringing home three Gold Medals in total.
Chantal St. Laurent, from Parksville, dominated the girls division in the Towed Water Sports events, which included wakeboarding, wakeskating, best trick, barefoot and a jump category as well. St. Laurent came very close to medaling in four different events but finished in fourth place in the girl’s 14 – 17 jump event.
From there on out, St. Laurent went on to post a perfect score of 100 in the girl’s 14 – 17 wakeboarding event. She followed that up with another score of 100 in the wakeskate event, bringing her Gold Medal total to two in three events.
The third Gold Medal of the BC Summer Games came on the team side of things for St. Laurent, who was a part of the Zone 6 (Vancouver Island) team that finished with a total of 1720 points, 550 points clear of second place.
St. Laurent joined Julie Preston as another triple Gold Medal athlete from Parksville at the BC Summer Games hosted in Nanaimo July 17 -20.
