Geneviève Lalonde shines!

The 36 athletes from Team NB witnessed a few excellent performances worth celebrating at this past weekend's Legion National Athletics Championships held in Burnaby BC.  

Geneviève Lalonde, from Moncton, raced what was without a doubt  the highlight of the weekend. Her two victories in both midget girls distance races were very impressive indeed. It started Saturday with a win in the 1500m in a time of 4:36.32. Then, on Sunday, she showed all her qualities as a true distance runner by winning the 3000m in 9:56.64, good for a new Legion National record - and also faster than the winning time for the juvenile girls 3000!!

Three other New Brunswickers got a taste of the podium:
Grégoire Arsenault, from Laplante, won the bronze in the midget boys 400m, with a PB of 53.50s.
Alex Stuart of Riverview also won bronze, in the midget boys 300m hurdles, with a time of 46.64s.
Barry Britt, from Hampton, had a fantastic weekend in the juvenile boys distance races. He started by running an awsome PB in the 1500m  (3:59 - 4th place) and the next day won the bronze in the 3000m with a time of 8:44.05 - another PB!
