The first Victoria High Performance track meet took place Saturday, May 5th at the University of Victoria’s Centennial Stadium. There were 14 competitions in total from 100-metres to 3,000-metres as well as men’s long jump.

It was the first meet on the brand new track surface.

At least two records were set, pending ratification.

In the 800-metre event, Victoria’s Liam Stanley finished in the time of 2:01.22. He competes in the T37 Paralympic category. He has twice set national records in the event, previously going as fast as 2:03.19 and 2:03.11. Saturday, he finished fourth overall.

Just ahead of him was T20 cat. Michael Barber, finishing in 1:58.00. Barber ran under the two-minute barrier for the first time. His performance is also pending ratification as a national record.

In the women’s 3,000-metre event, Victoria’s Marilyn Arsenault was attempting to add to her collection of national records, however, had looked up the incorrect time to go after during her seven-and-a-half lap race, missing the mark by just over one second. She finished in 10:21.21, thinking that was well under the mark, but what she should have been chasing was 10:19.00.

It was a two-woman race with Georgia Ginther of the University of Victoria Vikes competing as well. She finished in the time of 10:39.04.

The main event featured a few Vikes including Tyler Smith, in the 800-metres. There were three 800-metre sections. Smith recorded the fastest time on the day, however, was seeded with a 1:49.00 and has run in the 1:47s. Saturday, he won in the time of 1:52.43.

“We were blessed with great weather, and the athletes rose to the occasion,” said Bruce Deacon. “We had fantastic para performances from Michael Barber and Liam Stanley as they demonstrated world-class form.”
