Burnaby karate kids to nationals

Eleven Burnaby athletes will be competing at the 2012 Karate Canada national championships in Richmond next weekend.
The city’s contingent is led by Victoria Barusic, a Grade 12 student at Byrne Creek secondary, had a gold and silver at last year’s championship.
She repeated that haul at a junior Olympics event in Las Vegas, and also won a gold at the Commonwealth championships in Sydney, Australia.
The others from Burnaby are Derek Chan, Isabel Chan, Joey DiPietro, Aya Kitaok, Andrea Maikawa, Jag Sandhu, Harpreet Sidhu, Vanessa Vung, Junya Yamamura and Daniel Zhang.
