The long road to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games has started at indoor arenas across Canada and the United States as Canadian track and field athletes assess their fitness for the upcoming season ending up at the IAAF World Championships in Doha next October. Many of Canada’s established Olympians are either starting later or omitting the 2019 indoor season altogether but our next level is fighting to establish their claim to contend for the coveted Canadian Olympic Team Selection. The Metro Vancouver areas first indoor meet is set for the Richmond Olympic Oval with the Jerome Indoor Games on February 2.
The Top Ten performances for the first week of 2019 for Canadian Men are lead by Surrey’s Luc Bruchet who competed for Canada at the Rio Olympics after graduating from UBC.
