Oct 21 2015 - Steve LeBlanc named NB head coach for 2017 Jeux de la Francophonie

Athletics New Brunswick is pleased to announce that ANB coach Steve LeBlanc, of Riverview, has been named as the head coach of athletics for the New Brunswick team attending the 2017 Jeux de la Francophonie taking place in Abidjan, Côte D’Ivoire.  This multi-sport competition, taking place from July 21 to 30 2017, is an international sporting and cultural festival which is staged every four years, bringing together athletes and artists from all over the world, representing the 57 member countries of the Organisation de la Francophonie and 23 associated nations.  As with any major games, the sport of athletics will feature prominently in the competitions.  The JDLF will feature several different team and individual sports as well as artistic and cultural exhibitions and competitions, with over 3000 participants.

Steve is the Director of High Performance for ANB, as well as being the head coach of track & field at the Université de Moncton and a coach with local club ASEA.  Steve served as the head coach of athletics at the previous JDLF held in Nice FRA in 2013.  He also has previous national team experience as a coach at the 2009 IAAF World Youth Championships in Italy, the 2010 IAAF World Junior Championships in Moncton, NB, and the 2015 FISU World University Games in South Korea.  A veteran coach with over 25 years of experience, Steve has been a coach at two Jeux du Canada Games, and he has coached at three different universities (Dalhousie, Alberta and Moncton).

 

“These Games are a major event in our competitive calendar, one of our most important programs for our high performance athletes,” stated ANB Technical Director, Gabriel LeBlanc.  “Steve’s experience at the previous Games and his other international experiences make him well suited to guide this team to success,” added LeBlanc.  In 2013, New Brunswick was represented by 8 track & field athletes, with their performances highlighted by Geneviève Lalonde’s bronze medal in the 3000m steeple chase.  “It is a great honour to represent my province at such a prestigious event, and I look forward to working with our top athletes to help them achieve success at the Games.  It is a great chance for our best people to gain international experience and get to that next level of performance,” said head coach Steve LeBlanc.
