Athletics Canada welcomes Kim Cousins and Geoff Harris

Athletics Canada announced today the recent hiring of Kim Cousins and Geoff Harris. Both Cousins and Harris have been hired to newly created positions made possible through support from Own the Podium.

Kim Cousins steps into the role of Paralympic NextGen Coach/Manager and is responsible for the delivery of the Paralympic NextGen Program. Her coaching career has already been very successful, most recently leading Alister McQueen to a silver medal in the F44 classification javelin throw at the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games. Cousins’ duties include identifying Paralympic talent capable of medalling at the 2020 Tokyo Games and beyond.

Geoff Harris, a native of Halifax, N.S., was hired in the role of NextGen Endurance Coach. Harris is responsible for the delivery of the NextGen Institute Endurance Program, and as part of his role, will help identify endurance athletes who have the potential to step on the podium at the 2020 Olympic Games and beyond. Harris had a very successful career as a middle-distance athlete, highlighted by competing at the 2012 London Games in the 800-metres.

For more information on Athletics Canada’s NextGen Program contact Carla Nicholls, cnicholls@athletics.ca.

I'm not sure if you could tell from yesterday's caption, but I was trying very hard to play it cool. In reality, not only am I extremely uncool but it turns out that the result of the race meant so much to me that I made this face when I crossed the finish line 😝
.
I'm very grateful to get the win and the IAAF World Championship standard! Thank you to @usatf for putting on another great meet and also to the state of California for existing.
