The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

Hamil­ton ath­letes won three medals at the In­ter­na­tional Chil­dren’s Games in Kau­nas, Lithua­nia, last week.

Ni­faiya Robin­son took a sil­ver medal in the boys 400-me­tre fi­nal, while Mark Sk­erl took bronze with a per­sonal-best leap in the long jump. Eileen Tang and Christina Yam­nyuk also won bronze in beach vol­ley­ball.

There were nearly 2,000 young ath­letes from 75 cities from around the world com­pet­ing in the 51st Games.

Hamil­ton’s Greg May­chak was re-elected to the 12-per­son In­ter­na­tional Com­mit­tee for the Games, and Ed Dunn, pres­i­dent of ICG Hamil­ton Inc., says Hamil­ton plans to par­tic­i­pate in the Games for a 28th time next year in Jerusalem.
