Mar 20 2017 - Belyea Brings Home Gold from Masters Indoor Champs

The Canadian Masters Athletics Indoor Championships took place this year on March 11 and 12 in Toronto, with athletes competing from all over the country. One of said athletes was New Brunswick’s own, Ross Belyea. This was Ross’s first experience at the CMA Championships – and he did not disappoint.

Belyea, a native of Hartland, New Brunswick, is a retired school teacher. Although this was Belyea’s first experience at the Masters Indoors Champs, he is no stranger to the sport. His track and field career started in junior high and continued on in high school. Ross has maintained his interest in the sport to this day, often seen competing at several ANB meets.

Ross has stated that his goal moving forward is to stay as active as possible for as long as possible while continuing to take part in provincial and even national meets. He also plans on competing in the World’s Masters Competition in August of 2020 being held in Toronto. It is safe to say Belyea has been preparing for this, even going so far as to construct a long jump pit in his backyard.

“No matter what your age is, it takes work, will power and dedication to compete at any level. Always believe in yourself and give it your best. Set a goal and always strive to improve” said Belyea.

On the competition itself, Belyea stated “This competition was one of the highlights of my time in track and field. The competition was stiff and I am pleased to say that I met the challenge. I was impressed with the high caliber of the masters athletes overall. All in all, my first experience at the Canadian Masters was very rewarding.”

Ross competed in the Men’s 70-74 age category in several events with spectacular results. In the 50m dash, he placed first with a time of 7.89s which set a new provincial record.

In the long jump, Ross set a new meet record with a jump of 3.79m. His triple jump was just as impressive with a best jump of 8.00m. This broke his previous provincial record of 7.80m and shattered the meet record by 51cm.

Belyea also took part in the 4x200m relay with teammates from Edmonton and Saskatchewan and set a new meet record with a time of 2:12.88s.

“Ross had an outstanding performance at the CMA Indoors this year and represented NB very well” said Gabriel LeBlanc, Executive Director of Athletics New Brunswick. “To come home with medals and provincial records is very exciting news. Ross is a veteran of the sport and we wish him success in all of his future meets!”
