World Junior Track and Field Championships in Moncton

Men's 5000m Final
Ross Proudfoot, 14th, 15:03.13
"The field is deep, those guys are in a whole other league. I see where this type of competition stands, which will prepare me for future competitions."

Women's 3000m Steeplechase Final
Geneviève Lalonde, 6th, 9:57.74 New pending Canadian Junior Record & New Americas Junior Record
"It’s really cool - a totally amazing feeling after this race. I didn’t know if this was going to happen at the first of the year but to finally bring it all together in my hometown at the end of the year, it’s a great feeling. I was a little worried about trying to keep up with them, but I thought I would try something new and it worked out very well for me. It was a wave of noise every time I came by the crowd and it’s what you need when you are trying to run a race like this."

Women's 5000m Final
Victoria Hanna, 14th in 17:28.99
"Love the home crowd, I started strong but as you could see I struggled at the end."

Carly Paracholski, 5th in semi final #1, 2:05.99 PB - Pending Canadian Youth Record - does not advance to final
Annie LeBlanc, 4th in semi final #3, 2:05.17 PB - does not advance to final
