Canadian Senior Track and Field Championships, Winnipeg, MB
Injuries were the nemesis of two Track North athletes at the Canadian Senior Track and Field Championships in Winnipeg this weekend.
Lisa Labrecque, nursing an achilles tendon injury, placed 9th in the senior women's 1500m with a time of 4:23.48.
Andrew Ellerton, who strained a hamstring in the 800m semi-finals, placed fourth in the final, with a time of 1:48.95.
Labrecque now heads to Belgium to compete in Sunday's Atletiek Vlaanderen Invitational. Ellerton's fourth place finish places him in the selection pool for the Commonwealth Games, to be held next March in Melbourne, Australia.
