Nov 29 2018 - Geneviève Lalonde named to represent Canada

Athletics Canada announced today the 24 athletes who have been selected to represent Canada at the 2019 NACAC Cross Country Championships (Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago) and 2019 IAAF World Cross Country Championships (Aarhus, Denmark) set to take place on Feb. 16 and March 30, respectively.  Among  the athletes named is Geneviève Lalonde of Moncton. This past weekend, Lalonde became the first New Brusnwicker to win a senior Cross Country National title. 

The 2019 squad, arguably one of the strongest cross country teams in Canadian history, will be led by Lalonde and three-time Men's national cross country champion Lucas Bruchet of British Colombia. 

“I had so much fun running with an incredible field at the Canadian Championships and was fortunate to have help early in the race,” said Lalonde who hasn’t competed in cross country in nearly five years. “We have a phenomenal team heading to NACAC and Worlds, and if we all have great races and work together we can accomplish something special.”

 

When asked what it’s like to represent Canada, she said “every time I put on that singlet, it’s like it’s the first time all over again. It feels almost like putting on a superhero suit. All of a sudden you have a responsibility to be incredible and to represent your country with pride and honour.”

The 24-member squad was selected based on their performance at the 2018 Canadian Cross Country Championships – the largest in Athletics Canada history with more than 1,100 athletes competing in Kingston – or, in the case of the senior men and women, by achieving an average Top 32 world ranking standard in the qualifying period.
