Roy tops on Gilles Villeneuve Circuit
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.
