It was a solid gold week for Francisco Machado at this year’s 2014 BC Seniors Games in Langley.
The Comox Valley competitor, running in the 65-69 age group, won all three races he entered.
He took first in the 200m in 29.65 seconds, fighting 25 km/h winds. Two hours later, those same winds were still blowing but they didn’t stop Machado from taking gold in 300m hurdles in 56.65 seconds.
The 400m saw Machado back on the podium after winning the event in 67 and 94/100 of a second.
