Team Ontario at Legion Nationals

The Youth National Legion Championships took place this weekend in Brandon, Manitoba, and we were pleased that a total of 42 athletes were selected to represent Ontario in the competition. Earning 48 medals (G – 19, S – 16, B – 13) in total, the athletes put on some spectacular performances throughout the three-day period.

A few highlights from the weekend include the following: Aysia Maurice, had a tremendous weekend, setting TWO new Athletics Ontario provincial records! In the U16 Girls 1200m, and 2000m, her respective times of 3:34.81 and 6:24.57 outshone the previous U15 records! She also earned a bronze in the 1200m and finished 4th in both the 2000m and 1500m steeplechase! Jillian Catton had some spectacular performances as well, taking home FIVE medals! In the U16 women’s category, she earned gold in the 100m, triple jump, 4x100m, sprint medley, and a silver in long jump. Additionally, three silver medals were earned by Alexa Windle who had some fantastic throws in the U16 Women’s Discus Throw, Shot Put and Hammer Throw!

On the men’s side, hats off to Ryan Jacklin, who took home three medals! His performances in the U18 Men’s Discus Throw, Shot Put and Hammer Throw earned him two gold and a bronze! On the track, Mark Skerl earned three medals! His performances in the U16 100m and 200m hurdles, as well as his participation on the Spring Medley Relay team, earned him two silver and a gold!
