Team Ultra Throw gathered for a casual get together at McLeod Athletic Park in Langley on October 14 to celebrate a successful season and salute members who went above and beyond in either athletic achievement or contributions to the Club.
After enjoying conversation and a barbecue lunch, club president, Dave McDonald announced seven Ultra members who made the top 15 in the World Masters Rankings. That’s pretty impressive for a club of approximately 25 people! The following are those members whose name sit among the world’s best:

Harnek Toor (M70-74) – 14th in Throws Pentathlon & 5th in Super Weight
Michael Deady (M65-69) – 11th in Shot Put & 5th in Discus,
Rose Hare (W65-69) – 13th in Hammer, 12th in Weight, 10th in Discus, 6th in Throws Pentathlon & 2nd in Super Weight
