Senior competition at the 2017 Canadian Track and Field Championships begins 10AM Tuesday at Terry Fox Stadium in Ottawa with the 2017 Para-Athletics International Challenge and Pan American Combined Events Capital Cup. A number of athletes who have earned the right to represent Canada at the IPC World Para Athletics Championships July 13-23 compete in the 200-metres, 800-metres and discus. Those athletes include: Marissa Papaconstantinou of Toronto, Kyle Whitehouse of St. Catherines, Ont., Pamela LeJean of Cape Breton, N.S., Ness Murby of Salt Spring Island, B.C., Jennifer Brown of Calgary, Renée Foessel of Orangeville, Ont., Ilana Dupont of Saskatoon, Sask., Jessica Frotten of Whitehorse, Y.T.

In the women’s Heptathlon, former junior Canadian record holder Nicole Oudenaarden of St. Albert, Alta., is currently the third ranked Canadian in 2017. Oudenaarden represented Canada at FISU in 2015 and is looking for a good score to propel herself to another Canadian team.

Pierce LePage of Whitby, Ont., of broke onto the senior decathlon scene last year with an score of 8027 points at the Decastar meeting. Currently the #2 ranked decathlete in Canada, LePage will need to a score of at least 8100 points to secure a birth to this summer’s IAAF World Championships.
