In less than one year, Moncton will welcome the whole world as we host the IAAF World Junior
Championships in Athletics, from July 19 to 25, 2010. Close to 2000 athletes, aged 19 and under,
representing an astounding 170 countries, will dazzle us as they run, jump and throw. Some of those
same athletes will be the stars of the Olympic Games in London 2012.
For the very first time in New Brunswick, a running team is training together, aspiring to compete at
that level. Our O2 team includes two regular members of the National Team (Team Canada ) as
well as five other up and coming athlete already competing at the Canadian Championships level.
This had never happened before in our province.
