ides were taken during his time as president including the development of the organizations policies and implementing its online presence. Harold was a key component in bringing the 2010 World Junior Championships and its legacy to Moncton and New Brunswick, noting at the time “Moncton 2010 is a dream come true. The legacy this
event leaves for our sport in New Brunswick is awesome and the event will focus on the sport of track and field. We have come a very long way.” Harold also coached teams to the Canadian Legion Youth Championships and Canada Games for many years.
Leroy Washburn of Oromocto, N.B., has been involved with the Royal Canadian Legion track and field program since 1975. He has been involved as one of Canada’s top officials for over 60 years. He played a key role in leading the standardization and improvement of the Canadian officiating program. Leroy officiated at the 1967 Pan American Games, 1976 Olympic Games, 1986 Commonwealth Games, and 1979 World Cup. He was also an International Technical Official at the 1994 Pan American Games and 1996 Olympic Games.

Apr 15 2014 - Athletics New Brunswick Announces its High Performance Teams from the Indoor Season
Athletics New Brunswick is pleased to announce its’ High Performance Program teams from the 2014 indoor season. These athletes achieved performance standards which place them as the best in the province, and in many cases among the best in the country. As a part of the High Performance teams, these athletes will have special training and competition opportunities to help them continue to improve with the goal of representing New Brunswick on the national and international stage. A total of 59 athletes achieved the required performance standards, with 21 of those achieving the A standards.
A complete list of team members is availble here: http://www.anb.ca/page.php?content=HPPindoor2014team
“It is a great sign for the health of our sport in New Brunswick that we have so many athletes performing at this level,” said ANB Director of High Performance Steve LeBlanc. He added, “It is also interesting to see that we have athletes from all disciplines of our sport making these standards – sprints, hurdles, middle and long distance, jumps, throws, and the combined events, and both able-bodied and paralympic athletes. Our clubs and coaches should be commended for being able to help athletes from all areas of our sport to develop and reach success in their chosen events.”
ANB Technical Director Gabriel LeBlanc noted the regional representation of the teams as well. “We have athletes from all areas of the province making these teams,” he said, “with the north, south, east, and west all being represented.” A look through the hometowns of the athletes confirms the wide range of communities that are producing track & field athletes, from small towns to large cities. “At the junior and senior level, our development has been helped immensely by the strong university programs in New Brunswick,” added LeBlanc. New Brunswick presently has three university track & field programs based at the Université de Moncton, St. Thomas University and both the Saint John and Fredericton campuses of the University of New Brunswick. “It has given our NB athletes the option to both stay in their province and stay in their sport as they pursue their education.”
Some of these athletes are brand-new to the HPP teams, while many have been previously named from last summer’s outdoor season or the fall cross country season. Some of the notable athletes from the HPP teams who compete primarily in these outdoor seasons include javelin specialist Caleb Jones (Saint John) and cross country stars Barry Britt (Hampton) and Ryan Cassidy (Grande-Digue).
The Athletics New Brunswick High Performance Program is an athlete support program targeted at junior and senior athletes who have shown significant potential to perform at a national and international level. Athletes will be named to this program at three opportunities throughout a calendar year, based on their performances during the previous competition season. Athletes will be designated to the A or B teams based on their performance, and will receive certain special competition and training related opportunities as well as financial support based on their team designation.
