Dec 3 2018 - Laura Dickinson Smashes Canadian U20 Record

Only one day into December, three Canadian records were broken in the 5000m. At the Boston University / Sharon Colyear-Danville Season Opener in Boston, Massachusetts, both the men's and the women's U20 national records were broken, along with the women's U23 record. Among the record breakers was New Brunswick's Laura Dickinson.

Laura Dickinson of Miramichi, a member of ASEA and competing for Syracuse University, finished 18th in the women's 5000m with a time of 16:10.65. Not only does the performance smash the U20, U23, and Senior women's provincial records, it also breaks the Canadian U20 record by over 20 seconds. Laura's performance breaks Shona Mcculloch's record of 16:31.22, set in 2016.

The performance betters the provincial U20 and U23 records by over two minutes, and the provincial senior record by over a minute and a half. The U20 and U23 records were formerly held by Lindsay Laltoo, with a performance of 18:21.21 in 2002, while the former senior record was held by Sacha Hourihan, with a performance of 17:56.12 in 2017.

Laura has now secured herself as the greatest female 5000m runner in New Brunswick history, holding every women's 5000m record, both indoors and outdoors.

The 5000m event proved to be very successful for Canadian athletes: 

Charlotte Prouse of London, ON, a member of London Legion and competing for University of New Mexico, smashed the Canadian U23 record, finishing 7th with a time of 15:26.01. Charlotte's performance narrowly misses Megan Metcalfe-Wright's Canadian Senior record of 15:25.15, set in 2011.

Tyler Dozzi of Terrace, BC, a member and competitor for University of British Columbia Track and Field, broke the Canadian U20 record, finishing 12th with a time of 14:18.92. Tyler's performance broke the former record by just 0.05 of a second. The former record was set by Ehab El-Sandali in 2016.

Yves Sikubwabo of Kicukiro, Rwanda, a member and competitor for Université Laval Track and Field, finished 9th with a time of 14:11.30.

"Laura is a tremendous athlete who consistently impresses the nation and raises the bar following each and every performance," said Gabriel LeBlanc, Executive Director of Athletics New Brunswick. "Time and time again, Laura proves that she can not only compete against the best in the country, but that she can win against both her competitors of today and yesterday."

Each Canadian record broken at the competition remains pending, subject to the usual ratification process by Athletics Canada.
