Joining Robertson for the announcement were members of the local organizing committee, including vice-chairman Jeff Kelly, and representatives of the city of Moncton, Athletics South East, Athletics New Brunswick and Universite de Moncton.
“The Canadian Track and Field Championships is Athletics Canada’s premier event and we are very excited to welcome the nation to Moncton in 2013 and 2014," said Moncton Mayor George LeBlanc. "This event will be another feather in our cap and proves once again how Moncton can host world class events." The Mayor was joined on the podium by a very special guest for the unveiling of the logo. The Local Organizing Committee has brought back Sporti, the popular mascot from the 2010 world junior championships, to serve as official mascot for the 2013-14 nationals.
In a message from Athletics Canada, Chief Executive Officer Rob Guy said “Athletics Canada is excited to bring the 2013 and 2014 Canadian Championships to Moncton. The 2013 edition will be especially exciting as it will serve as the World Trials for our team heading to the World Championships in Russia,” He added “The community has shown that it can stage world class track and field events as evident by the wildly successful World Junior Championships. With the 2010 World Juniors, the upcoming 2012 National Track League Hub City Classic, and then nationals in 2013 and 2014, Moncton is quickly becoming known as Track Capital of the East.”
A highlight of the logo launch was the introduction of several area athletes who will be competing in this year’s national championships in Calgary next week. Speaking on behalf of Athletics New Brunswick, Gabriel LeBlanc said “We are seeing excellent growth in the sport with a growing number of high performance athletes as evidenced by the strong contingent the province is sending to Calgary. It is the ultimate measure of success for most athletes to compete to be national champions” he added. “Next year our superb young athletes get to do that at home and that just makes it all the more special”.
In outlining some of the local organizing committee’s key objectives, Robertson emphasized the opportunity hosting these championships presents for the continued development of track and field in the region. “We have a great legacy to build on from our experience with 2010”, he said. “We have the fastest track in the country, the best stadium in the country and a group and a community committed to hosting the best national championships ever in Canada.”

Jun 15 2012 - Para Athletics Clinic a huge success !
The indoor track at CFB Gagetown came to life on Sunday, June 10th, as it played host to a Para-Clinic. Put on as joint effort between Athletics New Brunswick and Ability New Brunswick, the clinic brought together athletes of all abilities and skill levels, both physically and intellectually disabled. The goal was to promote and explore the ways that these differently abled athletes can train and compete within New Brunswick, as well as to simply introduce new athletes to the world of Para-Sport.
An eager group of nearly twenty athletes were on hand to participate, and they had the option to try their hand in several events: indoor javelin, shotput, discus, and even wheelchair racing. As an added bonus, Dr. Earl Church, Canadian head coach of numerous Paralympic Games and World Championships, was on hand to lend support and coaching in the throwing events.
The morning kicked off with an introduction to the world of wheel chair racing by James Brace, the current New Brunswick record holder in the wheelchair 200m and 400m. James led the group through how exactly a race chair works, demonstrating the brakes and steering, as well as safety equipment used. His demonstration was quite surprising, as the athletes learned exactly how much hard work and skill it took to navigate a race chair. James' demonstration offered much insight.
After the demonstration, the athletes split up to pursue whatever event most suited their interests. Wheelchair racing proved to be the most popular, though much was learned in the throwing area under Dr. Church's expertise. Several young throwers discovered their natural throwing ability, and are looking forward to further refining the sport. Wheelchairs flew by on the track, and despite some tips and spills, some aspiring wheelchair racers were born.
At the end of the two hour clinic, everyone gathered together for a group photo. Strangers had become friends, and a whole new world of athletics was opened up to those who may have never thought it possible. To finish off the morning a race was held on the outdoor track between Mr. Brace and his team-mate Veronica Coombes. All involved were in good spirits as the event came to a close, and all athletes left the track with a smile.
