Local track and field enthusiasts can of I en be seen running up Ihe 200 sleps at the newly-constnicled viewpoint at Indian Battle Park. "Kutming up the stairs creates an energy and oxygen debt in the major muscle groups of the legs and fitness can be defined as Ihe speed with which the body is able to replace that energy and said George Smith, biology teacher at Piclure Kuflc High School and a member of Canada's track team for the past two seasons. j Athletes have been known to mil Ihe sleps 20 i times. To break Ihe monotony they sometimes add an clement of competition by timing their runs. The overall best performance, not at Indian Battle Park, was by Zig Strain's of Vancouver in 23.9 seconds, two sleps al a time. The local mark is held by Smith in a time of 30.4 seconds.
