Hinzmann golden at Games

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.

The Games wrap up today.
