David Adeleye of the Ottawa Lions Track and Field Club won a gold medal in the 110 metre hurdles at the 2019 National Legion Track and Field Championships. The 16-year-old only began competing in hurdling last year, according to Lions’ coach Zach Quevillon. Adeleye had the top time in the preliminary heats at the youth national championships, qualifying for the finals race in 14.55 seconds. He shaved one-tenth of a second off that time in his national title-winning race. In the spring, Adeleye won a bronze medal in the senior boys 110 m hurdles at the OFSAA Track and Field Championships. He also won a bronze medal in the junior boys 100 m hurdles in 2018.
