Luke Dizon sets five territorial track records

NWT Track & Field congratulates Yellowknife’s Luke Dizon on setting five territorial records earlier in March at the Alberta Indoor Track and Field Championships.

Luke, who is 13, tied for first place overall in the event’s bantam division. He won two gold (long jump, high jump) and three bronze (60m, 150m, shot put) medals.

“I was very surprised because I didn’t think I was going to win first overall,” Luke told CBC North. “I was getting hyped up in my head. I wasn’t really showing it.”
