B.C. woman crowned the fastest female marathon runner in Canadian history
Malindi Elmore ran an incredible 2:24:50 at the Houston Marathon

DANIEL TAYLORJan. 20, 2020 11:00 a.m.NEWS



A Kelowna native has taken the sporting world by storm, shattering the Canadian women’s marathon record on Sunday.

Malindi Elmore ran an incredible 2:24:50 at the Houston Marathon, eclipsing Rachel Cliff’s time of 2:26:56 set in March of 2019.

Elmore has an impressive running resume that spans over two decades. Before representing Canada in Beijing in 2001, she attended Stanford University where she still holds the school record in the 800m and 1,500m distances. Then, in 2004, she represented Canada at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Greece, where she just failed to qualify for the semifinals.

In 2006, she competed at the commonwealth games and in 2011 at the Pan Am games as a 1,500m specialist where she ran one of the fastest times ever by a Canadian woman at 4:02.64.

In 2010 she briefly decided to retire, however seven years later in January of 2019 when she tied up her laces again and ran an amazing time of 2:32 at the Houston Marathon.

Now, just a year later, she has been crowned the fastest woman marathon runner in Canadian history.

With the record, Elmore has more than likely solidified her spot for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Her time is now the fastest-ever run by a Canadian woman. Unless someone comes along and breaks her record, she has likely earned her place. The Olympic marathon team will be officially announced in May.

Laurentian Track: Ottawa Winter National Results
January 18, 2020, Ottawa, ON

“Gareau and Wallingford bring home medals as Laurentian Indoor Track Team kicks off 2020 Season in Ottawa”

Eric Gareau (#7)

Keon Wallingford (#6)

Laurentian University’s Indoor Track team competed at the Ottawa Winter National this weekend and came home with two medals, 13 Top-10 finishes and nine OUA Championship qualifying marks.

The men’s team was led by Eric Gareau and rookie Keon Wallingford. Gareau (2nd year Forensics, London) won silver in the men’s 1000m (2:31.09), placed 5th in the 1500m (4:02.67) and 7th in the 800m (1:59.56). Wallingford (1st year Criminology, North Bay) ran a huge 14 second personal best in the men’s 3000m, winning bronze in a time of 8:40.83.

Additional top 10 performances on the men’s side included Liam Passi (4th year Actuarial Sciences and Economics, Sudbury) placing 7th in the 1500m (4:03.16) and Caleb Beland (4th year Kinesiology) placing 8th in the 1500m (4:03.96).

Top 10 performances on the women’s side included Natasha Mayer (4th year Health Promotion, Sudbury) placing 7th in the 300m (42.70) and 10th in the 600m (1:41.85); Christina Robert (1st year Kinesiology, Sudbury) placing 9th in the 60m (8.03) and Erin Hansel (3rd year Forensics, North Bay) placing 10th in the 800m.

“Eric had a solid two days of competition to open up his season this weekend” commented Darren Jermyn, Associate Head Coach. “His large base of training this past summer and excellent cross-country season have provided him with the aerobic base he needs to run well indoors. He’ll now focus on improving his top-end speed as we get further into our schedule.”

Regarding Wallingford’s breakthrough performance, Jermyn commented, “We knew following his past few practices that something special could happen for Keon this weekend and he definitely didn’t disappoint. He is on track to being ready to compete for both Team Canada at the Pan-Am U20 Cross-Country Championships at the end of February in Victoria and for Laurentian throughout the indoor track season.”

The Laurentian Indoor Track team will next compete as a full squad at the York Open, on Jan 31st and Feb 1st
