Local fans previewed Canada’s young track and field stars this summer at the national championships in 2015 and it will be an elite athletics encore next July when Derek Drouin, Shawn Barber, Andre De Grasse, Melissa Bishop, Brianna Theisen Eaton, Damain Warnier et al return to the University of Alberta’s Foote Field for the 2016 Olympic trials.
Canada won an unprecedented eight medals, including gold for pole vaulter Barber and high jumper Derek Drouin, at the 2015 IAAF World Championships in Athletics at Beijing. This country’s emerging track team of twentysomething talents is poised for similarly impressive results at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
