Aug 13 2019 - Lalonde Wins Gold at Pan Am Games
After very successful Athletics Canada National Track & Field Championships where Geneviève Lalonde reclaimed her national title in the 3000m steeplechase, the Monctonian headed to Lima, Peru to represent Canada at the 2019 Pan American Games.
The Pan Am Games took place from July 26-August 11 and included 41 countries from South America, North America, Central America and the Caribbean. At the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto, Ontario Lalonde won a bronze medal in the 3000m steeplechase; she was aiming to do even better at this year’s Games. She certainly did step up her previous performance by claiming the gold medal and establishing a new Pan American record! She won in a time of 9:41.45. Congratulations Gen! NB is so proud of you!
Genevieve will be competing again on the international stage this coming August 18th at the Muller Grand Prix Birmingham which is part of the IAAF Diamond League.
