Brittany Crew Sets New Record

Brittany Crew (SISU Throws Club) was up to her old ways this past weekend at the Penn State Tune Up in University Park, Pennsylvania. The 2016 Olympian set a new Canadian U24 indoor record in the shot put with a throw of 17.93m. The new throw bested her previous record of 17.91m, set earlier this month at the Akron Invitational. This now places her in 15th place on the IAAF standings and is only 8 cm off of the Canadian Indoor Shot Put record set 5 years ago by Julie Labonté.

AO POD MEET

CAN YOU RUN, JUMP, THROW, WHEEL??!!

Why not try it all.  Friday March 17th, Athletics Ontario will team up with Variety Village to let you try it all at our Pod Meet.

THE WHAT?

What is a Pod Meet? A pod meet is all about participation and less focused on just winning. The idea is to provide kids an opportunity to try track and field in a fun, non-competitive environment.  Participants will have a chance to try Long Jump, Triple Jump, Sprints, Hurdles, Distance, Relay, Shot Put, Javelin

THE HOW?

Participants are placed into groups (pods). Those groups will begin at an event and given an opportunity to to participate. You can try as many times as you want during the time-frame.  When it’s time to switch the groups will move to the next station and get to try that station.

THE WHY?

BECAUSE TRACK & FIELD IS AMAZING!  It has something for everyone and is the basis for every sport!! We at AO love it so much we want EVERYONE to experience how much fun it can be.
