Farmer, Implement Salesman Smiling!
Although the rain drops can’t be seen easily here it was raining enough for farmer Daryl Thompson (right) and local equipment salesman Alex Gartner of Wilmar Implement Co. Ltd. to get soaked if they stood outside very long on Thursday morning. It was the first rain of any significance in the Provost area since mid summer 2001—and with very little snowfall in the winter, the M.D. of Provost recently declared an agricultural disaster (PN May 29). Crops not already severely stressed may now have a chance to develop—providing more rains arrive. ©Provost News Photo.

Adams Takes Silver, Bronze at National Tae Kwon Do Finals
A Provost woman won a silver and a bronze medal in Canadian tae kwon do championships recently.

Radean Adams and an Alberta team consisted of 12 other members competed in Stephenville, Newfoundland on June 1 and 2.

The patterns competition took place on Saturday, June 1 when Adams won the silver medal.

Adams then won a bronze medal in sparring on Sunday, June 2.

The tae kwon do sport that she is taking involves mainly kicking.

Adams, who will be 21 years old on June 16 travelled to Eastern Canada with her sister Renee and father Albert.

There were over 200 black belts attending this championship.

The tae kwon do competitor was in the fly weight division (103 to 112 pounds) that had nine people in the pattern and nine in the fighting championships.

The Provost woman says she won the silver medal by virtue of “a lot of hard work” and “practice, practice” spending four hours per day leading up to the national events. She also watched her diet carefully, avoiding all junk food and ate mostly fruits and salads.

In her bronze win, Adams fought the current World Cup champion who lives in Quebec and “It was just a great experience”.

She is happy with her overall standings and will soon begin training for Olympic carding. If she qualifies at that level that will open the door for possible tryouts at the Olympic level. The carding competition will be held on September 14 and 15 in Toronto.

Adams has her fourth year of university studies left to complete her education degree.

Meanwhile her sister Renee, also of Provost is training for the junior national championships to be held in B.C. the end of this month.
