New Balance #3
￼NEW BALANCE TRACK MEET #3 This was the 3rd and final track meet in the New Balance mini-meet series. It took place in Calgary on Sunday June 4th. Two athletes from Passtrak competed and both achieved significant success. Alina Pharis ran the 300 metre sprint in the Midget girls category. That includes all athletes who are 14 or 15 years old in 2017. It was her first attempt at this event and she earned a 6th place finish with a time of 50.81 seconds. Mathias Gelber ran the 2000 metres in the Midget boys division. He won the event by crossing the finish line in 5:58.30. That is a life time best performance for him and also a new Passtrak club record for his age group. That time also qualifies him for the Canadian National Championships that will take place in Brandon Manitoba in August. He did so with gusto by exceeding the qualifying standard by a whopping 24 seconds.
