George Runs 4th in 400m to Lead Cheetahs

Nathan George ran an inspired race at the Canadian Championships to narrowly miss his first Senior National Medal. George finished 4th in a time of 47.17 in extremely windy conditions. Earlier in the day, George finished 9th overall in the 200m. James Linde finished 10th overall in the 200m but was the victim of terrible wind conditions. His wind was a negative 5.9 metres/second which was more than 3 metres/second worse then the other two semi-finals. He would have certainly qualified for the final if he had equivalent wind conditions. Raquel Tjernagel ran her second best time of the season to finish an excellent 6th place in the 400m in her first Senior Nationals competition. Tjernagel also qualified for the 200m final on Sunday with the 4th fastest qualifier.
