The 2022 BC Summer Games start today. Here's who's representing the Tri-Cities

The majority of local youth are competing for the Fraser River zone across 20 sports.

The BC Games, summer or winter, can act as a big stepping stone for young athletes in pursuit of their athletic dreams.

And today might be day one for dozens of Tri-Cities teens that have a goal of reaching the top of the podium and beyond.

The 2022 BC Summer Games are set to get underway today (July 21) in Prince George with 27 sports on the docket for the four-day event.

In total, 85 young athletes are set to represent our region from Anmore, Belcarra, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody.

Most competitors will represent the Fraser River zone (4) at the games, while others qualified to play for the Fraser Valley (3) or Vancouver-Coastal (5) zones.

Some of the athletes have been waiting a longer time to participate after the 2020 summer games were cancelled by the then state of the COVID-19 pandemic. The BC Summer and Winter Games are held every two years. "Having athletes from every corner of B.C. gather again in Prince George is a dream come true for competitors, coaches, volunteers, and organizers," says B.C. tourism, arts, culture and sport minister Melanie Mark (Hli Haykwhl Wii Xsgaak) in a news release.

"This is an exciting opportunity for our province's top young athletes to demonstrate their hard work and determination."

In 2018, the Fraser River region racked up 132 medals, including a summer games-high 50 silver along with 43 gold and 39 bronze.

Those representing the Tri-Cities are set to compete in 20 sports, including one in association with Special Olympics BC.
