Ellerton in Victoria

Sudbury's Andrew Ellerton placed 2nd at the Victoria International Track Classic on Thursday, running 1:46.12, and once again meeting the Olympic "B" standard. Ellerton crossed the finish line behind Canada's World Championship Silver medalist, Gary Reed, but ahead of Kenyan Jackson Leangat, Korean Lee Jae Hoon, and Canadian Olympian, Kevin Sullivan.

To be considered for the Olympic team, Ellerton must twice run the "A" standard of 1:46.0 and place top-4 at the Canadian Olympic Trials.

Ellerton's next race is at the Harry Jerome Classic in Abbotsford, BC on Saturday, then the Olympic Trials in Windsor on July 5th and 6th.
