Emma Qualifies, Rankings, Chantry in Ottawa

Windsor Open - Emma Qualifies for Nationals

Emma Tallman ran a personal best in the 800m and qualified for the Canadian Junior Championships, later this summer in Moncton, NB.

Emma's time of 2:12.96 broke the standard of 2:15.00 and currently ranks her 2nd in Canada in the 800m among Junior runners (19 and under). She placed 5th in the race, primarily against senior-aged athletes.

Emma Tallman - National Rankings

While Emma will be starting her third year of university in the Fall, she is still a Junior-aged athlete and what she possibly doesn't even know is that her indoor university times placed very highly in the Athletics Canada rankings. Her national rankings were as follows:

National Rankings: Athletics Canada, Junior Category
800m - 2nd
1000m - 2nd
600m - 4th

Chantry Cargill placed 18th overall in the 5k at the Ottawa race weekend, (1st in the M17-19 category), running a time of 16:09.
