Athlete of the Month (August 2016): Geneviève Lalonde. For the third time in 2016, Geneviève Lalonde takes home the honour of Athlete of the Month. This is a testament to the breakout year she has had on the track. It was impossible to pass over the Moncton, NB native, who is coming off a 16th place finish at the Rio de Janeiro Olympic games 3000m steeplechase in a time of 9:41.88. Her preliminary round performance, however, may have been even more impressive, in which she broke her own Canadian national record by completing the race in 9:30.24. At only 24 years old, the future looks bright for one of our province’s top athletes. Congratulations, Geneviève!
