South Surrey rower Jordan Johl returned home from Welland, Ont. last month with a gold medal, after he helped Canada’s junior team to a win at the Canamex Regatta.

Johl, a South Surrey native who studies and rows at Shawnigan Lake Boarding School on Vancouver Island, was part of both the men’s eight crew and men’s four team that won gold.

The Canamex Regatta is an annual event hosted, in turn, by Canada, the United States and Mexico.
