Congratulations to parathrower Jessye Brockway, who won a gold medal in discus and a bronze medal in javelin at the 2015 International Wheelchair & Amputee Sports World Junior Games in Stadwskanaal, the Netherlands this weekend. She also narrowly missed the podium by coming 4th in shot-put.
The wins are just the latest in a long string of success for the young athlete, who also attends Trinity Western University. She was named BC Athletics 2014 Female Para-Athlete of the Year and has won several medals at other international events.
Jessye trains with the Pacific Athletics Throws Group, where she’s coached by Sheldon Gmitroski.
