Posted in Featured, Videos

An up and down season finished golden for track and field star Keely Watts-Watling of the Okanagan Athletics Club.

After a shoulder injury kept her on the sidelines for most of the summer in 2013, she still managed to qualify for her third trip on the National stage in the heptathlon.

The grade 12 KSS student won her first national gold medal by 64 points over the closest competitor.

Her efforts also won her the City of Kelowna Civic Award as the Female Athlete of the Year.  She talks to Ryan about the award, the upcoming season and more.
