Canada’s <strong>Debbie Brill</strong> held the W40 Indoor High Jump record of 1.72 set in 1995


<strong>Tom Phillips</strong> writes from Britain….

On Saturday, March 27th, at the British Masters Indoor Championships, Britain’s <span style=”color: #ff0000;”><strong>Julia Machin</strong> </span>(better known a few years ago as Julia Bennett) jumped <strong>1.78</strong>, with near misses after that at 1.81.

We also had a WR in W75 HJ and SP from Rosemary Chrimes.


As mentioned in the Enews March 29<sup>th</sup>, <strong><span style=”color: #ff0000;”>Yannick Le Mouel</span></strong> is an athlete who competed for France in Kamloops.

He lives in Montreal. I got hold of him for a chat….

<em>Bonjour Yannick,</em>

<em>Your results in Kamloops were better than the Canadian Records. Are you a Permanent Resident of Canada?</em>

I have lived in Montreal for the past four years and I am waiting to get my Canadian citizenship.

<em>In future World Championships, after your citizenship comes through, will you be competing for Canada or for France?</em>

As soon as I have my Canadian citizenship, I will compete for Canada. I would like to compete at the Canadian Masters Championships in Toronto in July. Currently, I take part in meets with my club St Jean Olympique, which is based on the south bank in Montreal. Last year, I took part in the European Championships in Italy.

I am not sure if the record for Canada has been beaten because I am still French.


<em>The CMAA accepts records from athletes who have been permanent residents of Canada for at least two years.</em>

<em>Yannick ran 8.74 in the M40 60m Hurdles during the Pentathlon. The CAN record is Glenn Chipkar’s 9.11 set in 2002.</em>

<em>He won the M40 Pentathlon with 3499 points.  <strong><span style=”color: #ff0000;”>CAN record</span> </strong>is 3115 Winchester Johnson SK 2005</em>

<em>60mH  8.74,  HJ 1.63, SP 8.88, LJ 6.05, 1000m 3:02.09</em>

<em>Hopefully Yannick can join Team Canada next summer in Sacramento at the World Masters Championships.</em>
