August Results Roundup

While some of us may have wrapped up our seasons, Manitoba still had a number of athletes competing around the globe last week! 

Noah Neves was representing Canada for the first time in Trinidad and Tobago at the Commonwealth Youth Games. He capped off the experience with a strong 5th place finish in the 800m. (And was one of five 5th places finishes for Canada, which was the highest placing for the team at the Games).

A group of 36 athletes from both Manitoba and North West Ontario were busy competing at the Legion National Championships in Sherbrooke, Quebec. Full meets results can be found here – Legion Results
