Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Town­ships wheel­chair ath­letes Diane Roy and Michel Fil­teau took place in the 31st edi­tion of the Defi sportif Al­terGo, last Satur­day, at the Gilles Vil­leneuve Cir­cuit in Mon­treal. Eleven ath­letes took place in the 10 kilo­me­tre race and the two Town­ship­pers fin­ished in the top spots.

Diane Roy fin­ished the race with the best time of 24 min 46 sec, just ahead of Sarah White and Vir­ginie Si­card. “It was a good time. I was faster by ten sec­onds com­pared to two years ago at this race,” said Ms. Roy who re­cently took part in marathons in Paris, Lon­don and Bos­ton. She heads to the Swiss Na­tional Cham­pi­onships in the mid­dle of the month.

Michel Fil­teau, of St. Jean Bap­tiste, es­tab­lished a Que­bec record on the course.
