The Ninth Jerome indoor Games is set for tomorrow at the Richmond Olympic Oval. events start at 9:45am and conclude 5:15 pm. A record entry of over 500 athletes will contest the events for 9 years old to over 70 years. Spectators will see over a dozen meet record holders return to the 200m oval and 60m straight away. Many of these young athletes will be candidates for Canada’s national team in the near future.
A good example of one of the most competitive races tomorrow is the open men’s 60m. The line up with outdoor 100m times is Stephen Abosi-10.73, Anastas Eliopoulos-10.76, Kenny Blackman Jr-10.77, Amar Sandhu-1083, Praise Olatoke-10.85, Ben Tjernagal-10.95, Jesiah Pearson-McCoy-10.97 and Michael Aono-11.02. There is a good chance that the meeet record of 6.77 seconds held by Abosi will fall.
The open men’s 600m will be another battle with Sajjan Sarai, Aiden Kits and Michael Aono challenging the meet record of 1:22.92. The U20 men’s 600m will see Nico Aron and Matti Erickson compete for the meet rrecord of 1:25.94.
