Ocean Athletics elite high jumper, Joel Della Siega, with Abbotsford High Performance High Jump Coach Ziggy Szelagowicz, and Canadian National Team High Jumper Mike Mason.

Joel Della Siega sets new Ocean Athletics High Jump record with a jump of 2.03m !!!

"I had the privilege of being invited to attend an Athletics Canada Training Camp earlier this month. It was held at the US Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, California.  I had two weeks of beautiful weather, surrounded by and training with olympic and paralympic athletes.  I roomed with fellow Canadians Inaki Gomez, an olympic racewalker, and Michael Mason, a two time olympic high jumper.  The facility was amazing with accomodations for sports from archery to BMX racing and rowing.  Our days included heart rate and hydration monitoring and two workouts a day.  Between sessions we had access to physiotherapy and massage, as well as some world class information sessions by reknowned physicians and trainers. It was inspirational to witness some of the performances by these athletes, including a 2.23 meter (7ft 4in) high jump by Mike Mason.  

I am very grateful for having had this opportunity and am happy to report a great result with my best ever high jump result of 2.03m. This jump was achieved in a training session and I am looking forward to legitimizing it in a competition."                 Joel Della Siega
