More Great Results for NOC Athletes

2013Zone3-4XCBurgoyneWoodsExtracted from the excellent coverage by Bernie Puchalski in The St. Catharines Standard:


Laura Korsmit knew something was wrong during spring’s high school track and field season.

“I ran very slow at track,” the Grade 12 student at Holy Cross said.

She discovered she was battling the same iron deficiency issues she had in Grade 9, and was able to resolve the problem.

“I’ve been really building, and I have been having a good season so far,” said the 17-year-old, who won the Zone 4 senior girls individual cross-country title Wednesday at Burgoyne Woods.

The multiple Zone 4 champion, who has made it to OFSAA on three previous occasions, ran a comfortable race Wednesday.

“It felt good,” she said. “I was running in a big pack with all my friends and it was nice to get out and run with them again. It has been a while.”

It was a relaxing run, with so many runners moving on to SOSSA next week.

“There’s not a lot of pressure, so it is mostly going out at my own pace.”

Niagara Olympic Club coach Sharon Stewart was expecting Korsmit to do well.

“Laura is really strong right now. She has had really great preparation for cross-country and she’s running with more confidence,” Stewart said.

Korsmit has been getting pushed in practice by Ridgeway-Crystal Beach’s Kristen Kuhn, who has joined the NOC.

“It is really nice to have someone my age to train with,” Korsmit said.

This is her final year of high school running and she is open to both American and Canadian scholarship offers.

“I want to go into accounting and I don’t know if I can do that in the States,” she said. “And I like a lot of the schools here, too.”

McMaster and Queen’s are on her radar, although Brock isn’t.

“I don’t know if I want to be that close to home,” she said with a laugh.

Before she thinks of university, there’s a high school season to complete.

“I don’t think there is any pressure, because I don’t think it will affect what will happen in my future,” she said. “I can make it happen without it, but I really want to do well this year.”

She has no specific goal for OFSAA.

“I want to run a really good time and push myself,” she said.



Let the Games Begin! Will Canada be Medaling in Medellin?

From NOC Coach Bill MacDonald (in Medellin, Colombia):

Heather Petrick races tonight at 6:50 local time, 7:50 Ontario time.

Things are going very well in Medellin and Heather is ready.

Weather at race time should be good as it cools down every night to around 17 and when she races it should be close to 20.

There is altitude here in Medellin, 5000 ft, but Heather seems to be adapting well.

Go Team Canada!

Heather Petrick Chosen to Represent Canada at the Pan Am Jr Games

pan-am-boeing-747-400With her phenomenal Bronze medal winning time of 9:42 in the 3000m at the Canadian Junior  Track and Field Championships this past weekend in Laval, Quebec, Niagara Olympic Club’s Heather Petrick has qualified to represent Canada at the upcoming Pan Am Junior games being held August 23-25 in Medellin Colombia.

Heather was in the enviable position of being able to choose which event she would compete in at the Pan Am Jr games. She had previously qualified in the 5000 m with her Ontario record breaking run at the NCAA “Gina Relay” in Hillsdale Michigan this past April. She has chosen the 3000m as this is a race she has more experience running.

The selection to the Canadian Pan Am Jr team caps off a highly successful season for Heather, in which she was Silver medalist at the indoor provincial BMJ championships in the 3000m, set the Ontario U19 5000m record, placed 6th in the 1500 and 3000m at OFSAA in personal best times, and most recently was Bronze medalist in the 3000m at the Canadian Junior championships.

Now that’s being a high flier!

All four Canadian teams place in top 10 at today’s World Cross Country Championships!

From Athletics Canada:

Bydgoszcz, Poland – All four Canadian teams finished in the top ten at today’s International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Cross Country Championships.  The senior women’s team placed eighth, the junior men and senior women placed ninth while the junior men’s team placed tenth.

 In the senior men’s 12km race Mohammed Ahmed of St. Catharines, Ont., led the team to a ninth place finish, Ahmed crossed the finish line in 22nd place overall in 33:56.  “I got out waiting, the pace was slow which was awesome, I felt great until the final two laps.” He adds: “The hill in the last couple laps was the toughest and I was moving backwards but slowly; I was battling hard but it was impossible to make up ground at the end of the race with the slippery conditions and pace of the leaders. It was a good performance but I am disappointed as I was aiming for a top 16 finish.”

 Chris Winter of Vancouver B.C. was the second Canadian to cross the finish line in the men’s senior race placing 33rd in 34:15. “The entire week was amazing, the confidence the team showed going into this event definitely helped drive my performance. I was able to stay relaxed and execute my job. I never felt this good in my life, 10km felt easy and the race really started in the last 2km.”

The senior women’s team surprised themselves with individual 24th and 25th place finishes over 8km by Natasha Fraser of Port Moody, B.C. and Rachel Cliff of Vancouver, B.C., both finished in 25:30. The team met their objective with an 8th place finish overall in the team standings. “Individually I am super stoked and excited”, comments Natasha Fraser. She adds “to finish in the top 25 is amazing and I am so excited.”

Rachel Cliff adds “I am shocked and so excited for the team and Natasha and I. We are from the same area and worked together aiming to go hard and push for a top 50 finish. To be in the top 25 makes me speechless, it all came together.”

The junior men’s team placed 10th overall. Benjamin Flanagan of Kitchener, Ont., led the junior men’s 8km race with an individual finish of 34th in 23:21. “I couldn’t be happier with mine or the team’s performance”, explains Flanagan. He adds “It was a fast race and I was aiming for a top 50 performance.” Kingsville, Ont.’s Ryan Sleiman finished in 43rd with 23:32 and Troy Smith of Grimsby, Ont., in 53rd with 23:40.

In the junior women’s 6km race the team finished 9th overall. Madeline Yungblut of Wroxeter, Ont., led the women finishing in 46th with 20:34. Madeline McDonald of Toronto, Ont., was 47thin 20:36 and Jillian Forsey of Kippens, NFLD., was 49th with 20:40.
