10 National Track League Champs crowned in Toronto
July 13, 2011
Toronto – In front of a near capacity crowd at Varsity Centre ten National Track League (NTL) champions were crowned tonight at the Toronto International Track + Field Games. With points doubled on the final stop of the NTL circuit plenty of drama unfolded on the track, and in the field. The NTL winners were presented with championship trophies and will receive a $4,000 cash prize.
Scott Russell of Windsor, Ont., secured both his ticket to Korea and NTL title. Russell unleashed a bomb on his third throw setting a new Canadian record along the way. His throw of 84.81-metres was well above the World Championship A standard of 82.00-metres.
In the women’s hurdles Phylicia George of Markham, Ont., nipped Perdita Felicien of Pickering, Ont., at the line to take the NTL title in this event and the race. Her time of 12.87 seconds was just slightly ahead of Felicien’s 12.88.
