Batterink, Wiebe take Canadian 10,000m titles in London

Laura Batterink of Port Perry, Ont., and Kelly Wiebe of Swift Current, Sask., proved to be the class of the fields in Sunday night’s Canadian 10,000-metre Championships held in London, Ont. Batterink and Wiebe each set a strong early tempo to pull away from their competitors and spent a large part of their evenings racing against themselves and the clock. The wins are the first Canadian track titles for both Batterink (33:58.77) and Wiebe (28:58.90).

Rounding out the podium in the women’s race, defending champion Leslie Sexton of London, Ont., finished with silver in 34:59.25 and Jullien Flynn of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., crossed the line third for bronze in 35:30.64.

Last year’s 10,000-metres champion, Barry Britt of Hampton, N.B., ran a personal best and New Brunswick provincial record of 29:31.86 to finish second behind Wiebe and Sami Jibril of Toronto, Ont., who finished just a hair over thirty minutes (30:00.04) in the bronze medal position.

The remaining 2015 Canadian track and field titles will be decided later this summer. The Canadian Combined Event Championships are set for June 19 - 21 in Ottawa, Ont., and the Canadian Track and Field Championships (Junior & Senior) take place July 2 – 5 in Edmonton, Alta.
