KARLY DICKENSON

When did you join NTFC? What other favourite sports or activities do you regularly partake in? *

The fall of 2011. I think I was in grade 4. I was in dance before but hated it.

 

Which event(s) did you compete in? What were some of your goals/targets going into the outdoor season before it was scrapped? 

Cross country and mid-distance like the 1200, 1500, 2000 and 3000m. My goal is to be a top finisher in 3000m for BC High Schools Championships.

Is there an event that you secretly wish you had tried and why? 

Steeplechase but was too nervous about falling.

Which annual track meet did you most look forward to? Recall a highlight. 

The Langley meet. Staying at the hotel with the group. The whole meet was lots of fun.

Rank and briefly describe your top 3 track memories. 

1. BC Summer Games 

2. BC X Country provincial gold in grade 8.

3. The grueling work-outs with the gang.

Name a coach, athlete or mentor that had an impact on your track career so far. What would you like to say to them? 

There are a few to name. Tyler for pushing me to be my best as an athlete. Shelby and Melissa for sharing their passion with me. Keaton because he was with me from the start. It has been fun.

What are your plans next fall? 

Hard to say at this moment, but I know in the future I would like a career working with animals.

How do you see yourself involved in track and field in the future? 

I am always going to be a runner whether I attend school, compete in races or just for enjoyment.

How about some words of wisdom for up and coming young track + field athletes? 

Never give up, push yourself and have fun!
