Apr 27 2019 - Jarod Manuel is ANB's New Athlete Representative

ANB is happy to welcome Jarod Manuel to the Board of Directors as the newest Athlete Representative. Jarod was successfully voted in on Friday, April 26th 2019 by the community of ANB athletes. He will serve a two year term.

Jarod is a shot put, discus, hammer and weight thrower originally from Baie-Sainte-Anne, NB. He began his track and field career at the 2011 Jeux de l'Acadie, and has been a member of the UNB Reds track and field team for the past three years, winning four AUS conference medals and representing UNB at the USPORT national championships. Jarod has also represented New-Brunswick at the 2017 Canada Summer Games, and holds the indoor junior shot put and U23 weight throw records.

The newest Athlete Representative is a business administration student with a double-honours in accounting and finance. ANB is excited to add Jarod's business knowledge and passion to the Board of Directors.

When asked why he wanted to be the next Athlete Representative, this was his answer:

"I want to be a strong voice for all athletes. I want to represent the athletes to the best of my ability and ensure that everyone has the ability to share their opinion, and that these opinions are made known to the Board of Directors. The long-term success of an organization such as ANB is dependent on its members, with athletes making up the majority of these members. It is thus essential that there be effective communication between the Board of Directors and the athletes. My goal as the athlete representative would be to provide athletes at all levels and categories with opportunities to meet their goals and enjoy the sport. I would also like to work with the Board of Directors to grow our organization, and to ensure its long-term success at all levels. My experience as an athlete from rural New Brunswick, being involved with clubs in Fredericton and Moncton along with my UNB connection to Saint John, has allowed me to hold a very provincial, national, and global perspective on our sport and province, which would bring a balanced approach and the ability to effectively represent athletes from all areas and of all levels. The future of track and field in New Brunswick is bright – and I want to ensure it stays this way for years to come."

Best of luck to Jarod in his new role! We would also like to thank Shayne Dobson, exiting Athlete Representative, for his work on the Board over the last two years.

More details to come on how you can get in touch with Jarod if you have any questions/feedback for him. In the meantime, please reach out to anb@anb.ca.
