Christine Lowe raced to a bronze medal at the National Championships this past weekend in Moncton, New Brunswick. She entered the meet ranked 5th in Canada. Lowe continues to lead the Cheetahs with consistent strong performances at championship competitions. She is looking forward to reclaiming her provincial title in Kamloops, July 11-13, after being unable to finish last year's event due to injury.

Nathan George and Benjamin Ayesu-Attah continued their outstanding seasons by racing to a fourth and fifth place in the 400m. Running the final from the unenviable lanes 7 and 8, George and Ayesu-Attah ran brilliantly, both clocking a time of 46.69. Our two Cheetahs are now the first alternates for the Commonwealth Games which take place in Glasgow, Scotland on July 23-August 3.

Our final athlete to compete was James Linde in the 200m. Competing in his first Senior Nationals, Linde missed qualifying for the final of the 200m by one/hundredth of a second and finished 9th in 21.33.

All three of our men are eligible athletes for the NACAC (North America Central America and Caribbean Track and Field Championships) and are waiting for the official announcement for the naming of the NACAC Canadian Team which will be competing in Kamloops, August 8-10. There are 25 competing countries which include the USA, Jamaica, Mexico, Barbados and the Dominican Republic.

[Update July 4: All three men were selected for NACAC.]
