Cathedral junior Paige Danielson comes from a family of runners, and has been running for as long as she can remember.

Danielson competed in the ITU Duathlon World Championships Sprint Distance event on August 10th in Ottawa and took home a gold medal in the 16-19 year old age group.

The sprint distance event involves running 3.1 miles (5K), then biking 12.5 miles before another 1.5 mile run. Danielson finished with a time of 1:15:26 to take the gold medal.

Danielson will run cross country, play basketball and participate in track this year at Cathedral.
