Torrential downpours were the theme of this championship. But, this is the outdoor season and the show must go on! Phil Parrot-Migas and Chris Balestrini kicked off the weekend going 1-2 in the Senior Men 5000m, followed closely by Kevin Blackney and Jack Sheffar, who finished 4th and 7th. Balestrini followed up on Saturday with a silver medal in the 3000mSC, to cap off his double-silver weekend. On the senior men's side, more medals came from Taylor Stewart (Bronze) in Pole Vault, Ruach Padhal (Gold) in 800m and Mark Bujnowski took silver in discus. Kevin Strybosch took home gold and silver in the para senior men's shot and discus, respectively.
On the junior men's side, World Junior team member, Marcel Scheele won gold in the 3000mSC in less than ideal conditions, with Kyle Farquharson chasing and taking bronze. Josh Mather was golden in javelin, followed by newcomer Jared O'Riley in the silver spot. Eric Gareau was bronze in the 800m and Athony Atkinson was bronze in hammer throw.
