Jul 11, 2011 - Chris Robertson - Decathlon Medallist at 2011 Canadian Juniors

WINNIPEG - New Brunswick athletes are continuing to excel at national track and field competition.

Grande-Digue's Ryan Cassidy captured a silver medal in the 3,000-metre steeplechase at the Canadian junior track and field championships in Winnipeg during the weekend.

Cassidy, whose time of 9:05.57 was just .01 behind winner Gareth Hadfield of Calgary, earned a spot on the Canadian team that will compete at the junior Pan-Am Championships July 22-24 in Miramar, Fla.

This will be Cassidy's second national junior team. He was a member of the Canadian team that competed at last year's IAAF world junior championships in Moncton.

Chris Robertson of Moncton also enjoyed a strong showing.

He finished third in the decathlon, which included a personal-best performance in seven events, which is almost unheard of in a decathlon.

His combined score for the event 6,401 beat his own New Brunswick record by almost than 600 points.

His discus toss of 44.52 broke the junior discus New Brunswick record that has been standing since 1993.

"We are extremely pleased with these performances as they show the improvement of our athletes and programs," said Athletics New Brunswick technical director Gabriel LeBlanc.

He added that having Cassidy qualify for Pan-Am juniors and Robertson just missing qualifying for these championships may inspire other New Brunswick athletes
