Jessica Zelinka dominates Athletics Canada’s annual awards.  Zelinka capped an exceptional season by winning the Jack W. Davies Trophy as both the outstanding athlete and combined events athlete. She booked her ticket to the London Olympics with a Canadian record in the heptathlon at the Olympic trials, and added another victory in the 100-metre hurdles. Zelinka went on to finish seventh in London in both the heptathlon and 100-metre hurdles.    Congratulations Jessica from SportExcel
