New Record for Gaudes at the Atlantic Indoor Championships
Congratulations go out to Adam Gaudes who broke his own 400m indoor Juvenile Record on Saturday at Camp Gagetown by 4 one hundredths of a second finishing in a time of 51.57 seconds. Considering that the track in Gagetown is a flat 200m track and the one in Boston where he originally set his previous record is a banked track, it certainly bodes well for Adam in the upcoming outdoor session.
Over 130 athletes took part in the event with many personal bests being set. New Brunswick indoor records were challenged, but not broken in a number of events including the Midget boys 400m, the Juvenile Boys 60m Hurdles and the Juvenile Girls shot put.
