Ugale Breaks NYO World Record
Friday, April 26 2013
Unalaska’s own Steven Ugale broke a world record at the Native Youth Olympics state competition in Anchorage this week.
Ugale’s record was in the toe kick, which measures forward jump. Ugale jumped 96 inches, or 8 feet, beating the world record by four inches. The old record had been on the books since 1980.
Several other Unalaska athletes placed at the state competition. Kaylene Esnardo took fourth in the girls' wrist carry. Everdan Sagubo came in second in the boys' Alaskan high kick, and Connor McConnell won fourth in the boys' Eskimo stick pull.
