Aug 16 2017 - Lalonde 13th - Resets Canadian Record!

Once again, Geneviève Lalonde has lowered her own Canadian Senior 3000 meter Steeplechase record! This time, she has done it on the International Stage at the 2017 IAAF World Track and Field Championship in London, England. The Moncton, New Brunswick native finished 13th in a cohort of women dubbed the “fastest, most accomplished (3000 meter Steeplechase) field in World Championship history,” by announcer Steve Ovett. The herd of athletes included an Olympic champion, 3 World Junior champions and 2 former IAAF World champions. Lalonde’s placing represents her highest ranking in an IAAF world championship.

 

Moreover, her time of 9:29.99 makes her the first Canadian female steeplechaser to have dipped under the 9 minutes and 30 seconds. She bested her previous personal best and National record of 9:30.24. Again, she battled hard to remain in the race after an early race fall, and fought to hang onto the chase pack. The fast-paced race strung her to new heights. The Americans Emma Coburn and Courtney Frierichs grabbed the top two spots, followed closely by Kenyan Hyvin Kiyeng Jepkemoi.

 

Congratulations Geneviève ! Way to put NB and Canada on the map, once again !


Aug 15 2017 - NB athletes shine at Canadian Masters Championship

While Geneviève Lalonde was garnering attention in the spotlight of London, four of our best Masters athletes performed well right here in Toronto at the Canadian Masters Championship. New Brunswick had representatives in all throwing events, as well as in the high jump, and achieved great performance across the board. Our athletes even brought home a few national medals! Here are some of the great performances of our ANB members:

 

To begin, Paul Gauthier (M50-59) headlines our NB delegation after a strong weekend of throws. He took home his age group’s gold medals in the shot put and the discus throw, reaching distances of 13.26 meters and 40.39 meters, respectively. He also won gold in the men’s 30+ throws pentathlon, posting a score of 3425. Gauthier was not done there. He earned a silver medal in the weight throw, attaining a distance of 16.54 meters, and two bronze medals in the hammer throw and javelin throw with distances of 41.59 meters, and 40.93 meters, respectively.

 

Tracy Dunn (F45-49) was top Canadian in the hammer throw for her age group, thanks to a toss of 19.65 meters. She was second overall. She then earned a bronze medal in the high jump, clearing the bar at 0.95 meters. Dunn then collected her third medal of the weekend, thanks to her discus throw of 17.04 meters. In the javelin throw, she was 6th, reaching a distance of 13.75 meters.

 

Sharon Peabody (W50-59) collected three 4th place finishes within her age group. She threw the weight for 6.11 meters, jumped over a 1.0-meter bar in the high jump, and notched the discus for 15.40 meters.

 

Finally, Adrienne Cameron (W-65-69) earned a 4th place finish in the women’s high jump, clearing 0.9 meters. She then earned 6th place in the weight throw, tossing for 6.33 meters. Her javelin throw of 12.76 earned her 9th place. She then grabbed 10th place in the discus throw and 11th place in the hammer throw, reaching distances of 12.73 and 15.13, respectively.

 

Congratulations to our four master’s athletes, way to represent ANB!
