Aug 21 2017 - Lalonde and Macpherson ready to race in Taiwan

August 19, marked the beginning of the 12 day sporting competition known as the 2017 Fédération Internationale du Sport Universitaire (FISU) Summer Universiade. This year will be FISU’s 29th iteration of the Summer Universiade and Taipei City, Taiwan has the honour of hosting this competition.

FISU has been growing in size, attracting more and more athletes every year it is hosted. The athletics portion of the competition has a large contingent of participants, with over 1,000 athletes competing in 50 events making it the largest individual sport in the Summer Universiade.

This year, Athletics New Brunswick will be well represented by two outstanding athletes and our former High Performance Coach, and new University of Saskatchewan Head Coach, Jason Reindl. First, competing in the 3000m steeplechase, Genevieve Lalonde of Moncton will look to secure the top spot in her event, coming off an incredible performance in London, England at the IAAF World Track and Field Championships. Having just competed with some of the best in the world, Lalonde broke her previous national record with a time of 9:29.99 making her the first Canadian female steeplechaser to have dipped below the 9:30 mark.

Sarah MacPherson, a 1500m specialist, from Fredericton will also be competing at the Summer Unversiade. MacPherson was recently a competitor at the Vancouver Harry Jerome Track Classic where she broke the NB provincial record in the 1500m with a time of 4:09.90 – a new PB. She will look to continue with her recent successes and earn a place on the podium against the top university athletes in the world.

“Every time New Brunswick athletes are named to these international competition teams, it never ceases to amaze me” said Executive Director of ANB, Gabriel LeBlanc. “It just goes to show that we have real top talent coming from our province and inspiring the next generation of track and field athletes” added LeBlanc.

Genvieve will be racing the 3000m Steeplechase finale on August 26th at 9:00am AST.

Sarah will be racing the heats on August 26th at 1:40am AST and the finals are scheduled for August 28th at 10:15am AST.
