Kershaw's 5k!

Well, I know one nordic skier who can run. Devon Kershaw ran a 5k time trial today - on the Laurentian track, in flats, alone except for two timers, and hammered a personal best 15:03! His splits were 1k: 2:45, 3k: 8:50.

Devon is in Sudbury for a day or two and may drop by the track tonight with his girlfriend, Chandra Crawford.

For those of you who don't know him, Devon is a TNOR alumni who is a member of the Canadian Olympic Nordic ski team. He has already been a world cup medalist in the sprints. Chandra won a nordic gold medal in the last Olympics.
