Athletics Canada announces 2020 Pan Am XC team
In February 2020, Victoria, B.C. is webhosting the Pan Am Cross-Country Cup, which is able to see 4 Canadian groups competing. Athletics Canada introduced on Thursday the senior and U20 males’s and girls’s groups that will probably be representing Canada this wintry weather.
First- and second-place finishers from the senior males’s race at nationals (the qualifier for Pan Ams), Mike Tate and Luc Bruchet, are significantly lacking from the team. Both runners are most probably deciding to center of attention their wintry weather coaching efforts on an indoor observe season, versus cross-country races. Due to the brand new World Rankings gadget, the indoor observe season has turn into extra necessary than ever, with the issues collected right through that season serving to runners to qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Games.
However, it seems that that all the eligible senior girls have approved their bids. Gen Lalonde, who leads the senior girls’s team, has had an ideal yr. In 2019 she was once a World Championship finalist at the observe, she had probably the most highest-ever World Cross-Country finishes via a Canadian ultimate March and she broke her personal Canadian steeple file. She will probably be joined via two fellow World Championships competition, Maria Galea-Bernard (steeplechase) and Natasha Wodak (10,000m) on the upcoming Cup.
The championship will happen February 29.
