Ahmed Mohammed captured a pair of medals at the B.C. High School Track and Field Championships in Burnaby last weekend, two of the six won by male athletes from local schools.

Mohammed won a gold medal in the 2,000m steeplechase title Saturday by almost four seconds over Dylan Haight of Oak Bay. Mohammed, of Fleetwood Park Secondary School, was also the silver medalist in the 3,000m, finishing two seconds back of Luc Bruchet of Elgin Park.

Cam Mitchell of Fleetwood Park had to settle for second in the 800m race, after he couldn’t hang on to the lead he took with 200m to go, and was overtaken by James Clark of Thomas Haney in the last 100m.

“I knew it was going to be whoever guts it out in the last 100,” said Mitchell, who was pleased with his time of 1:55.72. “He (Clark) is the champion, he ran a good race.”

A throw of 50.13 metres by Gurinder Dosanjh of North Delta Secondary School was good enough for the silver in the men’s discus. Dosanjh was more than six metres ahead of the third place throw, and 3.5 metres behind winner Angus Taylor of Vancouver College.

Darcy Achari of North Surrey won a bronze medal in the men’s 400m, as did Imrose Baga of Fleetwood Park in the men’s shotput.
