The Township of Langley will host British Columbia’s best and brightest developing athletes July 22nd – 25th. With an average athlete age of 14 years, the BC Games are an important step for athletes towards provincial and national team programs. We expect to see many of these young stars compete on the international stage in the years to come.High performance athletes understand the importance of an integrated sport system that assists in their development. BC Games alumnus and professional cyclist Ryder Hesjedal sees the BC Games as an integral part of that system,
“Becoming a professional racing cyclist for Garmin-Transitions meant having opportunities and achieving specific goals along the way. The BC Summer Games was one of those opportunities and winning a gold medal for the zone of Vancouver Island – Central Coast was one of those goals. The BC Games were not only fun, they were an important step in my development and helped me to realize I had the potential to be a world-class cyclist.”
