Douglas-Hunt 'toughest competitor alive'

Less than eight months after she was almost killed on the job, Victoria police Const. Lane Douglas-Hunt has stunned family and friends by winning the gold medal in the "toughest competitor alive" event at the World Police & Fire Games in New York on Wednesday.

 

Douglas-Hunt gave new meaning to the name of the competition, which requires athletes to complete eight events in a single day.

The 24-year-old patrol officer, who returned to regular duty in March, topped five of the eight events to beat all other competitors in the women's 18-to-29-year-old open division


Lane suffered serious stab wounds to her left hand, requiring months of rehabilitation and keeping her away from the gym much of the spring.

Guy Hervé Seguin was charged with attempted murder in the incident. He stands trial in February 2012. 

 

 As soon as she was able, Lane got back to her rigorous workout routine of two hours of exercise each day.

 


Victoria police Chief Jamie Graham said: “Const. Douglas-Hunt has worked tirelessly on her rehabilitation, and for her to accomplish this achievement at the international level reflects highly on her, her supportive family and colleagues.”

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
