Aug 7 2019 - Strong Performance by Leblanc at World Para Athletics U20 Championships
This past weekend (August 1-4) Jacob Leblanc from Moncton, New Brunswick competed at the World Para Athletics U20 Championships in Notwill, Switzerland. Leblanc got to experience international competition at a young age which is very beneficial to his development. This will help the Monctonian grow as an athlete and give him an idea of what he will be able to do in the future. Jacob competed in the T54 400m, 800m and 1500m. He placed sixth in the 400m in a time of 56.59, fifth in the 800m in a time of 1 :59.44 and seventh in the 1500m in a time of 3 :59.30.
“I had a great experience at the 2019 WAP U20 Championships. I’m not going home with medals, but that wasn’t the goal. Competing internationally at a young age is extraordinary,” said LeBlanc.
We cannot wait to see what Jacob will accomplish in next. Whatever it may be, we know that he will continue to make NB proud!
