Jan 26 2018 - Lalonde will represent Canada at the 2018 Commonwealth Games

Athletics New Brunswick is very pleased to announce that Genviève Lalonde has been selected to represent Canada at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, taking place April 4th - 15th in Gold Coast, Australia.

The international stage is nothing new to the Moncton native, who now lives and trains in Guelph, Ontario. At the 2007 IAAF World Youth Championships, Lalonde finished 8th in the 1500m. At the 2010 IAAF World Junior Championships, held in Moncton, Lalonde finished 6th in the 3000m steepelchase with a time of 9:57.03, a then NACAC junior record. Lalonde's success has continued at the senior level, she was 19th at the 2015 IAAF World Championships, 16th at the 2016 Summer Olympics, and 13th at the 2017 IAAF World Championships, finishing in a national record time of 9:29.99. Among her other accomplishments are bronze medals at the 2013 Jeux de la Francophonie and 2015 Pan American Games, and a pair of medals for Team New Brunswick at the 2013 Canada Summer Games, where she also served as flag bearer for the closing ceremonies.
  The women's 3000m steeplechase will go straight to final, and is scheduled during the evening session on Tuesday, April 10th. Carrara Stadium will play host to all track and field events.

"Geneviève has proved herself time after time to be a world class competitor," said Gabriel LeBlanc, Executive Director of Athletics New Brunswick. "With the right preparation, she will have the potential to reach the podium."
