Jul 29 2019 - Huge win for New Brunswick’s 100 meter sprinter Jordan Henri
18 year old Riverview sprinter Jordan Henri proved he belongs with the best in the world in his age class (U20) taking the win and gold at the Junior 100 meter National Championship in Montreal on Friday evening. It was before a full Grandstand audience of some 3000 spectators at the Claude Robillard stadium that Jordan Henri performed at the highest level, initially in the evening running the semifinals with the fastest qualifying time of 10.48 seconds (which would be a new NB record, however a 2.7 M/sec wind-aided mark so does not count for a record). In the final and under the lights, Henri once again turned on full blast recording a 10.61 clocking in a thrilling showdown with Eliezer Adjibi (10.65), and Ken Blackman Jr. (10.68) all leaning hard at the finish line.
The feat was accomplished before not an empty seat in the Grandstand facility. While the main draw remained the showdown in the Senior Men 100m final between Andre DeGrasse and Aaron Brown (nearly a deadheat at 10.04) that was to follow, spectators certainly got much more of a show- seeing with this young New Brunswicker marking provincial history in the U20 Men's 100m final.
Jordan Henri is a member of the Aetos Athletics club that trains under headcoach and ANB Director of High Performance Steve Leblanc (who was seen doing a few celebratory acrobatics by trackside following Jordan’s win). Aetos along with ASEA are the two clubs that train side by side at the Medavie Blue Cross Moncton Stadium.
ANB Executive Director Stéphanie Doiron adds; “The legacy of Moncton’s hosting the 2010 IAAF World Juniors is continuing with now a new generation of athletes rising and clearly Jordan Henri and a few others will be the inspiration for the next generation just as Genevieve Lalonde, Caleb Jones and Sarah McPherson were for the current one. Jordan’s extraordinary accomplishment makes a very big statement that with top coaching, excellent facilities and plenty of opportunities all youth can develop and excel. Jordan’s feat on Friday evening is truly an inspiration to all youth that everything is possible even being the fastest man or woman. New Brunswick is also blessed to once again have an individual of his caliber who could not be a finer gentleman and certainly fierce competitor. His future is very bright and that is a win for all NB youth aspiring to success” she adds.
Another exceptional performance over the weekend, was that of another young Saint John sprinter in Craig Thorne who won the silver medal this time on Saturday evening (again before a full grandstand Saturday evening) and Victoria LeBlanc who took the bronze medal in the Women’s triple jump.
“With other young New Brunswickers besides Jordan such as Laura Dickinson, Erin Vringer, Shelby MacIsaac, Craig Thorne, and many more excelling in their age group, the future is very bright” Doiron adds.
