ANB Technical Director Gabriel LeBlanc noted the presence of several outstanding Paralympic athletes on the high performance teams.  “In particular, our throwers have really upped their game, both para and able-bodied,” he noted.  “Christel Robichaud and Caleb Jones have lead the way, but many others such as Jennifer Bell, Elizabeth MacDonald, Naomie Maltais, and Liam Turgeon have all pushed the level of throwing in New Brunswick to new heights,” added LeBlanc.  “And speaking of heights, our high jumpers have also pushed the limits. And then there are the combined event athletes!  So much great momentum in our sport right now.”
