Results from World Masters Athletics Tampere 2022
The World Masters Athletics Championships took place in Tampere, Finland between June 29 and July 10, 2022.
Thanks goes out to Team Canada managers Vern Christensen and Wendy Melvin who led 76 Canadian athletes through two weeks of track and field, racewalking, road racing, and cross country competition.
To represent Canada at a World Championship and to explore a new part of the world is a special experience. A World Championship offers the opportunity to meet Canadian athletes from across the country and to compete against athletes from around the globe. In Tampere, several Canadians distinguished themselves on the world stage. Team Canada captured 28 medals: 7 gold, 11 silver and 10 bronze.
Congratulations to the following Canadian athletes who reached the podium:
Note that M85 Karl Mey won Five medals.
Well done to our medalists and to everyone who participated!

The next World Indoor Championships will take place in Torun, Poland from March 25 to April 1, 2023. We are returning to Torun, where the last World Indoor Championships were held in 2019, and all Canadians attending enjoyed the city and its incomparable athletic facilities. Whether you have participated in several WMA Championships or are considering it for the first time, we encourage you to join us. We will be providing more information for anyone interested in attending, starting later this year.
