For the first time since Whitesnake hit the top of the pop music charts, iconic Canadian track and field coach Mike Van Tighem entered a cross country running on Saturday in Calgary.
Contesting the SAIT Open at Confederation Park, VanTighem waged a spirited battle with Name Not Recorded before fading in the final lap of the hilly 8 km race to finish 81st in a field of 85. He stopped the sundial in scorching time of 42:40.
Apart from muttering something about still having 5 years of CIS x-c eligibility remaining, Van Tighem was unavailable for further comment.
Runners everywhere are applauding the editors of Wolves AC for having the courage to publish the story that the “lamestream” media refused to cover.
Eventually, the results will be posted here.
