He will be 93 years old in February and is planning on attending the Games in 2022 to compete in track & field. His motto is “I will run in the 100 meter when I’m 100 years old.” – Tracey Huckerby
Tracey competed in the 2018 and 2019 55+ BC Games with her father and for the 2022 Games, Tracey’s brother will join the duo for his first time competing in the Games. In the 2022 55+ BC Games, Tracey will be competing in swimming, while her brother, Rodger Huckerby, will be competing in track & field after turning 55 this year.
