Michelle HARRISON and Luc BRUCHET lead the Top Ten list for the 2022 NTF TOUR on their way to the Jerome Classic

This past January, Athletics Canada announced the creation of the 2022 National Track and Field Tour which would kick off with an eleven meet track and field series, all in Canada leading to the World Athletics Championships starting on July 15thin Eugene, Oregon.  

This creates a wide opportunity for Canadian athletes to compete on home soil, in their own backyard.  In the past, many Canadian athletes sought high level competition south of the border.  

Now the dreams of the athletes can be realized with a “WE THE NORTH” attitude. The Vancouver Sun Hary Jerome Track Classic will play a major role in the NTF TOUR on June 14th.

NTF TOUR has already started with competitions in Burnaby, BC and Windsor, ON and the strong results are tracked with a weekly statistical Top Ten compilation.

Luc BRUCHET and Michelle HARRISON lead the Top Ten list to May 13. Many of the athletes on this list will follow their dreams and gain selection to the 2022 World Athletic Championships, Eugene, Oregon, 2022 Commonwealth Games, Birmingham, UK and the World Athletic Championships U20 in Cali, Colombia.

The Vancouver Sun Harry Jerome Track Classic will continue to provide our Canadian athletes with a taste of international competition.
