Canadian Junior Track and Field Championships to start today

June 7th – Moncton. Nine New-Brunswick athletes are currently in Winnipeg to take part in this year’s junior national track and field championship. For some, this will be an occasion to test their skills against the best in Canada. For others, it will be their opportunity to qualify for the Pan American Junior Championship set to take place in Guadalajara, Mexico, this October.

Two of our athletes, Ryan Cassidy (3000 meter steeplechase) of Grande-Digue and Adam Gaudes  (800m) of Fredericton already have experience on the international level, having qualified for last year’s World Junior Track and Field Championship in Moncton. They will therefore be defending their national team spots in Winnipeg.

Hampton’s Grace Annear has already run faster than the 800 meter qualifying standard of 2 minutes 12 seconds for the Pan American Games, and now she is set to place in the top two of that race in Winnipeg, which would secure her spot on team Canada.

“We are very proud of the quality of athletes that are coming out of New-Brunswick” stated Athletic New-Brunswick’s Technical Director, Gabriel Leblanc. “Last year, four of our athletes qualified for the national junior team, and we hope to have the same sort of turn out this year"
