Abbotsford speed skater Annabel Johnson has returned from Manitoba with a bag full of medals.
The young skater was competing for Team BC at Canada West Short Track Speed Skating Championship held in Selkirk, Man., against the best skaters in her development category from Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon and Northwest Territories.
Johnson earned gold in the 3,000 and 1,500 metres, as well as a bronze medal position in the 400 metres in the T2T 13-Girls.
Those strong finishes gave her the overall championship victory, just ahead of teammate Janie Green from Mission, who skated to gold in the 200- and 400-metre events. The pair teamed up for the 3,000-metre relay and earned silver.
Johnson skates with the Matsqui Blades club based at the Abbotsford Recreation Centre.
