Tim Nedow kept up his exceptional track and field season by setting a new personal best throw of 21.02 m in the shotput at the North American Central American and Caribbean Championships.
At his first nationals as a senior athlete, Thomas Nedow made a bet with his brother, Tim Nedow, to see who could best the other in the men’s shotput final.
Meanwhile, twin sisters Divya and Devyani Biswal proved they still know how to represent their home town at the 2018 Canadian Track and Field Championships.

The climb to the world stage of track and field continues for four local athletes following the 2018 Canadian Track and Field Championships.
It was a prosperous week for local under-20 athletes at the 2018 Canadian Track and Field Championships, thanks in particular to products of Louis-Riel High School. The Ottawa school saw four of its athletes win national silver at the Terry Fox Athletic Facility from July 3-8, putting it among the most well-represented secondary schools in the country.
At the London 2012 Paralympics, 80,000 fans rose out of their seats to do the wave in sync with the pace Jason Dunkerley set at the front of the men’s 5,000-metre race for athletes with no vision.
Like he did that night en route to the fifth and final Paralympic medal of his career, Dunkerley set a standard for excellence few can match over the course of 20 years as a national team member.
The key to speed is to take it slow.
