Nov 30 2014 - Chris Robertson sets new Pentathlon Provincial Record

Chris Robertson of Moncton and member of Athletisme Sud-Est/South East Athletics broke the New Brunswick Senior men’s Pentathlon record with a score of 3576 this past weekend at the Bob Vigar Season Opener in London, Ontario. This score would have been good enough to place him 7th in the CIS last season and should help punch him a ticket to the national championships in Windsor, ON this coming March. Robertson competes and is the captain of  the University of Western Ontario Track and Field Team.

Robertson had this to say: ‘’to be seeing results this strong early in the season is the result of the tremendous support I have been receiving over the last two years returning from injury. The 7 meter long jump mark and 2 meter high jump marks are very close and to achieve those in the midst of a strong pentathlon score would make an excellent final year as a university athlete. I’m looking forward to representing New Brunswick to the best of my potential in March at the CIS National Championships in Windsor.’’

 

Gabriel LeBlanc, Technical Director of Athletics New Brunswick added ‘’ Chris is among our top athletes showing that New Brunswick can compete among the best in Canada , to do this in his first competition of the year is outstanding.’’

Nov 8 2014 - 2 New Brunswick athletes named to Athletics Canada Athlete Assistance Program

Athletics New Brunswick is EXTREMELY proud to announce that two of its members, distance runner Geneviève Lalonde of Moncton and javelin thrower Caleb Jones of Saint John have been named to the Athletics Canada Athlete Assistance Program (AAP).  This program aims to assist international calibre athletes with their training and competition needs through the provision of a living and training allowance and where applicable, tuition expenses.

The AAP supports carded athletes in dealing with the increasing demands of pursuing both high performance sports as well as their career development that will eventually follow their athletic career.

‘’This announcement is very exciting for our program. Both of these athletes have invested a lot to get this level. In fact it was during an extended stay competing in Europe Geneviève established her AAP standards,’’ said Gabriel LeBlanc, Technical Director of Athletics New Brunswick.  ‘’We are extremely proud of both Geneviève and Caleb. To achieve their Olympic dreams, athletes of this caliber have to travel to various camps and competitions, and often the financial burden is a significant hurdle. This funding will definitely help these two athletes over the next year as they strive to represent Canada on the international stage,’’ added LeBlanc. 

LeBlanc is quick to add that “There is almost an exponential cost as elite athletes move up into the international scene. With over a half a dozen NB athletes now with realistic 2016 and 2020 Olympic ambitions, it is essential that we at ANB find additional sources of funding,’’ said Steve LeBlanc, high performance coordinator for Athletics New Brunswick.  “To this end, we will be launching a new multi-year fundraising initiative aimed at increasing ANB’s support for these international-class athletes, an initiative we hope will see government, corporations and individuals participating. This effort has already started with the sale of ANB’s 2015 calendar that features New Brunswick’s best’’ added LeBlanc.
