Two weeks ago, Cameron Ormond of Aurora, Ontario became the first girl to win four consecutive OFSAA cross-country championships. OFSAA, the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations, boasts the most competitive provincial championship in the country. Its rare for athletes to win more than one OFSAA cross-country title during their high school career. Those who win two are considered standout athletes. And winning four lands you in the company of Olympians.
This week we chat with Cameron and her coach Sue Deighan about the success and development of young stars. We discuss the power of teamwork and how to prevent burnout, and we relive the race that cemented Cameron’s name in history.
