May 29 2016 - NBIAA regionals Recap & preview for Provincials

This past Saturday over 600 New Brunswick high school track and field athletes competed in their respective regional meets in hopes of securing a spot at the provincial championships set for Saturday, June 4th at the Moncton 2010 Stadium on the Université de Moncton campus.

Qualification regionals determined the athletes, top 8 in each event from each region, who will advance to this weekend’s provincial championships. Competitors in all field events were required to jump a qualifying height in order to advance. Both regional meets saw athletes face windy conditions with periods of low temperatures, ideal for distance running but not many other events. Based on this year’s regional results, there exists the potential for exciting competition as well as the possibility of new NBIAA provincial records being established.

Performances to watch this weekend include:

- The noon 100m face-off between Jack Berkshire, Fredericton High School and Tyrell Martin of Dalhousie Regional High will be center stage next weekend. Jack Berkshire also ran a fast 200m and 400m and will be an athlete to watch next weekend, with a chance of pulling off wins in all three of his events.

- The senior girls 100m will also prove to be an exciting competition between Canterbury’s Samantha Taylor and École L'Odyssée’s Veronique Omalaosan.

- Clint Steeves of JMA placed first in senior male long jump, 110m Hurdles and 400m hurdles. Clint will be looking to better his own provincial 110m hurdle record this weekend.

- Hannah Trites of Fredericton High School ran an impressive times in the junior female 800m and 1500m, pulling off wins with times of 2:20.86 and 1500m, respectively.

- The 1500m senior female race will be one to watch between Miramichi Valley High School’s Laura Dickinson, who ran 5:02.68 in Rexton, and Hannah Cormier of Fredericton High, who ran 4:59.97 in Saint John. At last year’s championships, Dickinson broke the NBIAA record in the junior category with a time of 4:43.31 and will now target the senior record of 4:36.13.

- Lars Schwarz of Ecole Sainte-Anne ran well in both the junior male 1500m and 3000m race, battling Leo Hayes’ Micthel Kean. Kean took the win in the 1500m while Schwarz took the win in the 3000m.

- The junior female triple jump competition results included impressive distances from Magkeda Mekkonen of Ecole L’Odyssee at 10.07 m and Lexie Shannon of Leo Hayes High School at 10.73 m. Both athletes will look to better the existing NBIAA record of 9.83 m set by Brianna Forbes in 2015.

- In the junior male triple jump, Alex Cormier of École Mgr-Marcel-François-Richard jumped 11.62m placing him in good standing to break the junior boys’ NBIAA record of 11.53m set by Clint Steeves in 2014.

- Jillian Beck of Harbour View High School threw an impressive 33m in the junior female javelin.

May 28 2016 - Genevieve Lalonde Breaks National Record!

Genevieve Lalonde of Moncton has always been a storm to reckon with since her first days in the sport, and in recent years has made a name as one of the fastest in the nation's history. Today, at the Prefontaine Classic in Oregon, Lalonde ran a time of 9:32.17 to smash the Canadian record and become the fastest ever Canadian in the event.

The Prefontaine Classic, an IAAF Diamond League meeting, atracts some of the biggest names in the world including World and Olympic medalists, and even world record holders. The race went out fast with Ruth Jebet Bahrain winning with a time of 8:59.97, the second fastest time ever and just more than a second off the world record. Coming in just behind her was Kenya's Hyvin Kiyeng with a time of 9:00.01, the third fastest time ever. Emma Coburn of the United States took third in a time of 9:10.76, while Genvieve Lalonde finished 10th overall with a time of 9:32.17. The former Canadian record was held by Jessica Furlan of Saskatchewan with a time of 9:33.45, set in 2014.

Perhaps the most exciting conclusion to the race was the number of national records set. Ruth Jebet broke the Bahrainian record, Hyvin Kiyeng broke the Kenyan record, Emma Coburn broke the American record, and Genevieve Lalonde broke the Canadian record. Also of noting is that Genevieve managed to beat both Ashley Higginson and Shalaya Kipp, both of the United States, who had won gold and silver, respectively, at the Pan American Games last year, while Lalonde won bronze at that event.

"Genevieve has been at the top of the game for years now, and with a breakthrough season last year this record comes with little surprise, but with much excitement," said Gabriel LeBlanc, Technical Director of Athletics New Brunswick. "This time solidifies Gen as the fastest in Canadian history and is a phenomenal step on her way towards making the Olympic Games this summer."

This national record is not Lalonde's first, as she also held the national record in the 2000m steeplechase, set while winning gold at the Canada Games in 2013, and in the junior 3000m steeplechase 9:57.74, set while placing 6th at IAAF World Junior Championships held in Moncton in 2010. Her junior 3000m steeplechase record also serves as the North American junior record.

May 27 2016 - Caleb Jones Retires From Javelin

One of New Brunswick greatest athletes has announced his retirement. Caleb Jones of Saint John has enjoyed an extraordinary career in the world of track and field since beginning the sport, but has chosen to leave his competitive career on a high note.

Jones has been a champion at every level of the sport in Canada, winning gold medals at the Canadian Legion Youth Track & Field Championships in 2008, the Canadian Junior Track & Field Championships in 2010, the Canada Games in 2013, and the Canadian Track & Field Championships in 2015. Caleb has also won many gold medals at New Brunswick Championships, Atlantic Championships, and at the New Brunswick High School Championships where his record has not come close to falling.

In 2010, Caleb threw the javelin 69.68m to win the Canadian Junior Track & Field Championships and earn his spot on Team Canada for the IAAF World Junior Track & Field Championships taking place in Moncton. Caleb's throw was also good enough to smash the championship record, then held by Scott Russell, Canadian record holder in the event and a 10th place finisher at the 2008 Summer Olympics.

At the World Junior Championships in Moncton, Caleb threw 69.36 to qualify for the finals where he threw 69.77 to finish 10th overall and as the top Canadian.

In his career as a senior athlete, Caleb won the gold medal in the javelin at the 2013 Canada Games in Sherbooke, and just a month later finished 5th at Jeux de la Francophonie in Nice, France. Recent years has seen trips to Finland to train and compete with many of the best javelin throwers and coaches in the world. In 2015 Caleb narrowly missed out on making Team Canada for the Pan American Games, but earned redemption as he won a gold medal at the Canadian Track & Field Championships, then the only national championship he had yet to win a gold medal at.

Caleb retires from the sport with provincial records in the javelin, in the youth, junior, and senior category. Although never an easy decision, Caleb, with the guidance from his coach Dr. Earl Church, has decided that the best long term decision is to bring his career to a close as a result of chronic injuries.

Jones is now planning a full-time transition into the art world, expanding his role as Manager of Jones Gallery and Studio, a Saint John-based business founded by his sister, Sarah Jones, in 2010. Caleb has stated his deep appreciation for all those who helped fuel his outstanding career in the sport and to the many loyal fans spanning all across the province.

"Caleb's retirement is certainly very sad news for out sport, but it is also the time to look back on a phenomenal career that last a decade," said Gabriel LeBlanc, Technical Director of Athletics New Brunswick. "Caleb ends his career as one of the most decorated and successful athletes in our sport's history, a champion at many levels in the sport and a strong competitor on the international stage."

Athletics New Brunswick wishes Caleb the best in his new career and will sincerely miss him as a competitor in the sport, but will always hope to see him stay in the sport in some capacity. Although Caleb retires, he has left a legacy that has inspired many other athletes in the province.


May 20 2016 - Coaching Education update

 May 20th, 2016

Over the past six months Athletics New Brunswick has worked hard at increasing the number of coaching education events and opportunities offered.  The association believes that the strength of the sport starts with educated and qualified coaches across the province. Since November of 2015 a total of 127 individuals have taken part in a National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) coaching education event offered by Athletics New Brunswick or as members of ANB took part in an event offered by a partner organization.

-    11 trained at the Club Coach Sprints and Hurdles workshop (Saint John)

May 3 2016 - Gen Lalonde shines in Palo Alto, California

For one of Canada's best ever steeplechase runners the season has just begun, but eyes are already looking towards a new Canadian record and a spot on Team Canada for the Rio Olympics.

 

Genevieve Lalonde of Moncton competed at the Payton Jordan Invitational in Palo Alto, California placing 2nd in the 3000m steepelchase. Lalonde finished the race in a time of 9:38.88, her third fastest time ever and just 5 seconds off the national record. This time is the fastest among Canadians this year, and puts Gen as the 7th fastest in the world so far this year. The time also qualifies Gen with the A+ standard for Team New Brunswick at the 2017 Jeux de la Francophonie, taking place in Côte d’Ivoire.

 

The race was won by last year's NCAA Championships runner-up Courtney Frerichs with a time of 9:29.31, while 2012 Olympian Shalaya Kipp was 3rd with a time of 9:43.72. Frerichs' time is the 5th fastest time in NCAA history.

 

With such a strong season already underway, Gen has been invited to compete at the prestigious Prefontaine Classic, an IAAF Diamond League meet. Gen will race the 3000m steeplechase at the meet, taking place May 27th and 28th in Eugene, Oregon. The Prefontaine Classic has become one of the most recognized meets in the world and has featured many of the world's top performances in history including a number of world records.

 

"It is great to see such a strong season opener for Gen at the Payton Jordan Invitational," said Gabriel LeBlanc, Technical Director of Athletics New Brunswick. "This result certainly puts Gen in an excellent position to make Team Canada for the Rio Olympics this summer, and to take aim at the Canadian record."
