Scott Simpson Canadian Champion! - The 10000m Canadian Championships (held separately from the Canadian Senior Championships to be held in Ottawa in August) were run this past Sunday in the Abbotsford Lafarge International Track Classic in BC. Scott Simpson from Sackville NB finished third in the race behind two Mexicans, thus claiming the Canadian Champion title in 29:51.04. Only 0.75 seconds separated the top 3 Canadians.
Scott's time is actually a minute and a half faster than the NB record, but as he resides in Victoria BC and is a member of Athletics BC, the NB record should not be validated...
