Richmond native Carson Bradley was happy to grab BC Summer Games gold in the men’s 300 metre race.

But you wouldn’t know it watching him ‘celebrate’ the win.

Bradley had a frown on his face and shook his head as he caught his breath at the finish line.

The Richmond native led the entire way, finishing nearly a second ahead of Surrey’s Ryan Pederson. But finished a second behind his personal best, crossing the line in 37.18s.

“I didn’t do as well today as I would have liked,” he said. “It’s great to compete here and win here, but it just wasn’t in the fashion I would have wanted.”

Bradley is good. Real good.

His trophy case is already full of medals and he’s achieved as much as a kid his age can achieve at the provincial level.

In two weeks he’ll be in Montreal for a national meet, and the BC Summer Games were his tuneup event.

“I felt good halfway through and I knew from past experience if it was close at that point I’d be able to pull away,” he said. “I’m usually able to get a much bigger lead earlier, but I wasn’t able to do that today.”

As he said that he again cast a wistful eye toward the clock displaying the results.

“The wind didn’t help,” he acknowledged. “It’s really hard on back-stretch because that’s where you really feel and it can make you decelerate.”

“It’s definitely not wanted but you also can’t control it.”

Pederson’s second place time was 37.76 seconds. Burnaby’s Gavin Fan was third at 38.12.
