We had two athletes, Mohammed Ahmed and Justyn Knight, participate in the 5000m and those athletes placed 6th and 9th respectively in the event.

Our female runners put on some fantastic performances for us throughout the Championship. Crystal Emmanuel ran a new personal best time of 11.14 seconds in the 100m semi-finals. In the 200m sprints, she placed 3rd in her semi-final and took a final place of 7th in the finals. In the 1500m heats, Gabriela Stafford ran a new personal best time of 4:04.55 but did not make it past the semi-finals, where she placed 12th. Lastly, Melissa Bishop competed in the Women’s 800m, and she placed 2nd in both her heat as well as the semi-final. In the finals, she took 5th with a time of 1:57.68.

Additionally, the Women’s 4x400m Relay team set a new season best time of 3:28.47 in their heats, but placed 6th and did not qualify to move on.

In the field, Alysha Newman qualified for the Women’s Pole Vault final where she finished in 7th with a jump of 4.65m. In our Men’s Pole Vault final, Shawn Barber finished in 8th place with a jump of 5.65m. Brittany Crew finished 5th in her qualifications in the Women’s Shot Put.
