While Manitoba had been credited with six bronze medals at the Kamloops, 2011 Western Canada Summer Games early Monday morning, pole vaulter Sarah Boila's bronze from Saturday was rescinded later in the day following a protest.
Boila and teammate Alexandra Allen, both vaulted 3.40 metres to finish in a tie for third place along with Courtney Erickson of Saskatchewan.
Allen, however, made the height on her third vault, while Boila required six attempts before clearing the height. Erickson required five. As a result of the count back, Allen kept her third place medal, Erickson dropped to fourth and while Boila dropped to fifth.
"What happened was a mix up between the people who made the awards, and the people who filled out the official result sheet," said Alanna Boudreau, Manitoba athletics team manager. "One the other teams double checked the results, and pointed out the error, so the Games officials had to correct it."
