Aug 21 2017 - Newly Crowned Maritime Track League Winners

The 3rd annual Maritime Track League concluded this year in Nova Scotia as Stellarton played host to the Atlantic Championships. This year there were a total of 9 events that served as eligible competitions for the series.  Athlete scores are the sum of the three best performances they have over the course of the eligible meets.

Competition was tough all around this year, with everyone vying for top rankings and prize money. On the men’s side, the winner was Tyrell Marin with a total of 251.73 points. He started his first eligible meet in Saint John facing heavy headwinds, but coming through with a first place finish in both the 100m & 200m. At the East Coast Games, Tyrell again found success with a wind-legal time of 10.87s in the 100m prelim and followed it up with an illegal wind time of 10.70s. For the final competition at Atlantics, Marin came through with a 1st place finish in the 100m with a time of 11.16s.

Moncton’s Véronique Omalosanga was the winner on the women’s side. She opened her season in May in Moncton and never looked back. At the East Coast Games she ran a blistering 12.31 in the 100m qualifying, and came back with an ever faster 12.26 in the finals. Netting her first place both at the Games and here.

 

Nova Scotia’s Ben Brown is the winner on the para side. Brown competed in a variety of wheelchair race distances, coming through with the win each time. At the Nova Scotia Canada Games & Legion Trials, he competed in the 100m, 200m, and 400m sprints with times of 17.01s, 30.24s and 58.81s respectively. Brown slightly improved his 200m with a time of 30.13s at the ANS Outdoor Track & Field Provincials. The Maritime Track League concluded for Brown with a 59.90s 400m sprint and a time of 30.27s in the 200m – 2 seconds faster than the competition.

“Another successful year for the Maritime Track League and our NB athletes” said Executive Director of ANB, Gabriel LeBlanc. “It is great to see so many New Brunswick athletes in the top 10 rankings and we hope that this initiative and partnership with Nova Scotia and PEI can continue to grow so as to benefit our sport and all of our athletes” added LeBlanc.
