She's always been able to spin a good yarn, now Citizen reporter Christine Hinzmann is showing she also has what it takes to be a track and field star.
Competing in the throwing events this week at the 55-plus B.C. Games in Kimberley-Cranbrook, Hinzmann won four medals - two of them gold - in the women's 55-59 age category. She won gold in the discus Thursday with a throw of 17.2 metres and was golden on Friday in shot put with a toss of 8.14 m.
Hinzmann also nailed silver in the javelin (14.27 m) on Wednesday and was the silver medalist in the hammer throw (19.34 m) on Thursday.
The Games wrap up today.
