BC Summer Games gives local teens a taste of the Olympics
Teen athletes from throughout the Thompson-Okanagan will get a tiny taste of what their future as Olympic stars could be like thanks to the BC Summer Games.
Occurring every two years, the 2016 Summer Games brings together athletes from all over the province to one region for an opportunity to be the best in B.C. Being one step above typical tournaments, athletes get to compete in three days of multi-sport competition. With 40 different sports in the Summer Games and hundreds of athletes, the provincial event brings a high level of competition for developing athletes ages 13-18.
