Two of our athletes also ran great races at the Q’s Victoria Track Series: Adam Gaudes (FFT) set himself a new personal best running the 800m in 1:49.90. Grace Annear (SJTC) also broke her personal best in Victoria in the 800m with a time of 2:09.30. Meanwhile, Jean-Marc Doiron (O2) finished 8th at the Blue Mile Road Race in Edmonton with a time of 4:26 and Chris Robertson (ASEA), despite being disqualified in one event, almost set a new NB decathlon record in Ottawa. Chris was only 200 points behind the 1978 record of 5891.
