I am certain many Comox Valley residents like myself are very proud of our three Comox Valley Olympians.
Geoff Kabush, a Vanier grad, at 35 years of age finished an amazing eighth in the world in mountain biking.
Young Cam Levins, another Vanier grad, was a finalist in both the 5,000 and 10,000 metres in athletics, finishing close to the medalists, a feat no Canadian has done in over 50 years.
Martin Reader, a Highland grad, was with his partner the last Canadian Olympians to qualify and were competitive in all of their matches in beach volleyball.
All three of these fine young men have limited financial sponsorship and yet have achieved world status in their respective sports. Incredible and inspiring to all, especially our youth!
Might there be interest in welcoming these Comox Valley Olympians back home in the near future in a community celebration event? Well done, lads. You have made us all very proud!
