Athlete of the Month (October 2014) Paul Gautier
Following up on a strong summer season, Paul took advantage of the mild fall weather to extend his season. And good that he did as Paul was able to establish two new Canadian Masters records at the ANB Fall Throws Spectacular in Moncton on October 4. After having just missed out on the national Throws Pentathlon record earlier this year, Paul was able to raise his game for one last go before he moves up an age category. Masters athletes often break records when they enter a new age bracket but Paul actually broke these two records just before leaving the 45-49 group. Both his 35lb weight throw performance (13.48m) and his overall Throws Pent score (3471pts) break the existing Canadian Masters records. Congratulations to Paul! And we expect that the Canadian records for the men's 50-54 group will be in peril by next summer as well.
