Glas­cow in July for Roy and Dupont

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Was it the cheese fon­due that led to the suc­cess of both Diane Roy and Alexandre Dupont, last Wed­nes­day, when they qual­i­fied for the Com­mon­wealth Games dur­ing an event in Not­twill, Switzer­land? The hilly cour­ses helped the wheel­chair racers to at­tain the times needed by the fed­er­a­tions for the sum­mer com­pe­ti­tions. This time, the times of 3 min 36 s for Ms. Roy and 3 min 06 sec for Dupont were re­quired in or­der to qual­ify for the 1500 me­tre event in Glas­cow. Roy fin­ished third.

Later, in the 400 me­tre event, Ms. Roy fin­ished sec­ond with a time of 57 sec­onds. Switzer­land’s Manuela Schar was first with a time of 55.82 sec­onds. In the 5000 m, Ms. Roy came fifth with a time of 12 min 16.17 sec.
