Athletics New Brunswick is very pleased to announce that Laura Dickinson of Miramichi has been selected to Team Canada for the Pan American U20 Track & Field Championships, taking place July 21 - 23 in Trujillo, Peru.

 

Laura Dickinson has impressed the nation for years, winning gold in the 3000m at the 2015 Canadian Indoor Track & Field Championships, winning gold (3000m) and silver (1500m) at the 2016 Canadian Indoor Track & Field Championships (while competing as a junior, despite being a youth age-class athlete).and winning double gold at last year's Legion Track & Field Championships. Laura currently holds eight provincial records, including the overall women's 5000m record with a time of 16:42.54, set at the 2017 Canada Games Team Trials in Saint John. Aside from the track, Laura is also a strong academic and a passionate volunteer, being awarded the inaugural Athletics Canada Foundation scholarship for high school students.

 

Laura is currently ranked 1st in the country among juniors for the 3000m steeplechase, and 2nd in the 5000m, and will represent the nation in both events at the championships.

 

Peter Stuart, Head Coach of ASEA Track Club, had this to say: "Laura has worked hard, for the last five years, to get to where she is today. It is great to see her make her first national team. She achieved a couple of her goals this summer. There is much more to come."

 

"I am so excited! It has always been my dream to make a Canadian Team and I can't wait to represent my country at the championships!," said Laura.

 

Remarkably, Laura is the only athlete from the Atlantic provinces to make the team. Following her experience representing Team Canada, Laura will represent New Brunswick at the Canada Summer Games.
