REMEMBERING
Harjinder Kang
April 01, 1954 – September 23, 2019
<p>this is a tesst</p><p>Harjinder joined the Greyhounds Masters Track and Field Club in 2013, and was an active member for seven years.<br />In his first year Harjinder competed in only two meets, the Trevor Craven Invitational and the BC Seniors Games,<br />winning a gold medal in the 3000m. Harjinder got off to a great start in the 2014 season, winning 4 gold medals<br />(400m, 800m, 1500m and 3000m) in the BC Masters Indoor Championships. But he got injured in the spring and<br />missed several meets, returning to win a bronze medal in the 5000m at the BC Seniors Game.</p><p>Perhaps the 2015 season was Harjinder's most successful year. Competing in the M60 age group he won 5 medals,<br />4 of them gold, in the BC Masters Indoor Championships. Harjinder also won a gold, a silver and 2 bronze medals<br />in the BC Masters Outdoor Championships. He won 2 more gold medals and a silver medal at the Trevor Craven<br />meet before completing the season by winning 2 silver medals and a bronze medal at the 55+ BC Games (name<br />changed from the BC Seniors Games).</p><p>Harjinder competed in two outdoor meets early in 2016, but unfortunately was injured in a car accident which ended<br />his season. In 2017 and 2018, Harjinder continued to compete in the long sprint and middle distance races, but he<br />added the throwing events, mainly the discus and weight throw to his list of competitive events. He continued to run<br />well and won about ten medals each year.</p><p>This year Harjinder entered the M65 age group and competed in the BC Masters Indoor Championships and five<br />outdoor meets. Perhaps the highlight of his 2019 season was competing with his Greyhounds teammates at the<br />Canadian Masters Outdoor Championships in Ste-Therese, Quebec. Harjinder won 2 silver medals and 3 bronze<br />medals, helping the Greyhounds win the Canadian Club Championships.</p><p>Harjinder was a dedicated athlete and took his training very seriously. Because he was still working, he often had to<br />complete his workouts alone. He was committed to the Greyhounds Club and when the club purchased a container,<br />Harjinder donated lumber and had his friend help make shelving so that the club could store our equipment in an<br />organized manner.</p><p>He left us far too early. We will miss our teammate who always had a friendly smile.</p><p>By Harold Morioka</p>
