Alain won the men’s heptathlon with a score 4370 and a clearance in the pole vault of 4.11m. Both these performances are new New Brunswick U23 and Senior records, and also AUS meet records. Sydney won the women’s pentathlon in a new New Brunswick U23 record with a score 3122.

Both his 1000m and 4x800m times lead the Athletics Canada and USPORT rankings, while his 600m time ranks him 10th in the USPORT rankings. With these performances, MacMackin has solidified himself as one of New Brunswick's fastest ever mid-distance runners.

Athlete of the Month (December 2016): Alex Whitmer. At the last chance meet Alex jumped 2.10m, although it isn’t quite the provincial record (which is 2.13m) it is by far the highest jump an ANB member in the better part of 15 years. It is also the standard for team New Brunswick for the 2017 Francophone Games which will be held in Ivory Coast in July.

Athlete of the Month (November 2016): Jordan Henri. Jordan set two new provincial records this past weekend at the Annual Gagetown Invitational in the Midget (14-15) category.

Following this performance, he ran an incredible time of 23.26 in the 200m besting the previous record by 6 tenths of a second.

Athlete of the Month (October 2015 ): Sarah Myatt. After having a great cross country season, Sarah was able to capture the silver medal at the AUS Cross Country Championships in a time of 22:37 (6km).

Athlete of the Month (August 2016): Geneviève Lalonde. For the third time in 2016, Geneviève Lalonde takes home the honour of Athlete of the Month. This is a testament to the breakout year she has had on the track. It was impossible to pass over the Moncton, NB native, who is coming off a 16th place finish at the Rio de Janeiro Olympic games 3000m steeplechase in a time of 9:41.88. Her preliminary round performance, however, may have been even more impressive, in which she broke her own Canadian national record by completing the race in 9:30.24. At only 24 years old, the future looks bright for one of our province’s top athletes. Congratulations, Geneviève!

Athlete of the Month (July 2016): Bridget Brennan. Our athlete of the month award goes to an individual who broke two provincial records, one in an event she had never done before! The Beechwood native broke the senior women's heptathlon record at the Atlantic Track & Field Championships in Saint John with a score of 4416.

With it still being early in the season, the province could certainly see Shelby break even more records!

Athlete of the Month (May 2016) Geneviève Lalonde. Perhaps one of the greatest performances in New Brunswick's history occurred this past weekend in Eugene, Oregon. At the Prefontaine Classic, an IAAF Diamond League Meeting, Genevieve Lalonde of Moncton finished 10th overall in the 3000m steeplechase with a time of 9:32.17 to break the Canadian record by over a second! This performance puts Gen in an excellent position to qualify for the Rio Olympics this summer and become the first Canadian woman to ever compete in the event at the Olympics!

Athlete of the Month (April 2016): Barry Britt. At the world renowned Mt. SAC Relays, Barry Britt placed 14th overall in the 10000m, completing the distance in a time of 29:21.99.

Athlete of the Month (March 2016): Grace Annear. After winning multiple medals and setting a new 600m AUS record at the AUS Championships in February, the Hampton native moved onto the CIS Championships in Toronto.

Athlete of the Month (November 2015) Jonathan Gionet Athletics New Brunswick is pleased to name shot putter Jonathan Gionet as the ANB Athlete of the Month for November. At the Gagetown Indoor on November 28, Jon had an impressive series of throws all over 14m, with his second round attempt landing at 14.86m to break the 21 year old record of 14m85 set by Travis Washburn back in 1994. This was his season opener so it should be quite an indoor campaign for the native of Bathurst. Last year, Jonathan represented St Thomas University at the CIS Track & Field Championships in Windsor ON. He will be looking to do so again this year at the CIS Championships at York University in Toronto ON in March. “This was a very good record that has stood the test of time,” noted Gabriel LeBlanc, Technical Director of ANB, “so it is quite an accomplishment to knock it off the books as the best ever indoor throw by a New Brunswicker.” ANB Director of High Performance Steve LeBlanc added, “I believe Jon is well on his way to going after the outdoor record as well. His progression over the past three years of throwing the big shot has been excellent, from under 13m back in 2012 to closing in on 15m. I expect to see big things from this young man over the next few years.”

Athlete of the Month (October 2015) Athletics New Brunswick is pleased to name Shayne Dobson as the ANB Athlete of the Month for October.

Shayne now holds the Canadian records for the T37 400m, 1500m and 5000m. A native of Campbellton, he now lives and trains in Moncton NB, where he is a member of the ASEA club. He is also an assistant coach for cross country at the Université de Moncton, where he was formerly the team captain before graduating in 2013 with a degree in kinesiology. “What an outstanding season Shayne has had,” effused ANB Director of High Performance, Steve LeBlanc. “He has posted solid times on the track, on the roads and on the trails all year long. And then to go to the World Championships and perform like he did – it was outstanding!” added LeBlanc. “Shayne is one of our top athletes, and has a real chance to represent Canada in Rio next year, and that is very exciting for a NB athlete developed right here at home,” stated Gabriel LeBlanc, Technical Director of ANB.

In order to secure her spot, Lalonde will now only need to remain in the top 3 based on time, and medal at the national championships.

Athlete of the Month (November 2014): Barry Britt and Ryan Cassidy. For the second year in a row, two of New Brunswick's finest distance runners showed dominance on the cross country scene. After a 4th and 5th place finish at last year's National Cross Country Championships, the duo did it again this year only to change positions, with Britt finishing 4th and Cassidy 5th. As a result of finishing in the top 6, both athletes have been guaranteed a spot on Team Canada for the NACAC Cross Country Championships in Barranquilla, Colombia, and the World Cross Country Championships in Guiyang, China! Ryan also finished 6th at the CIS Championships just 3 weeks prior and was named to the All-Canadian team andawarded MVP of the Canada West Conference!

Athlete of the Month (October 2014) Paul Gautier Following up on a strong summer season, Paul took advantage of the mild fall weather to extend his season.

After having just missed out on the national Throws Pentathlon record earlier this year, Paul was able to raise his game for one last go before he moves up an age category. Masters athletes often break records when they enter a new age bracket but Paul actually broke these two records just before leaving the 45-49 group. Both his 35lb weight throw performance (13.48m) and his overall Throws Pent score (3471pts) break the existing Canadian Masters records. Congratulations to Paul!
