The Canadian Championships have been held for the past 38 years. Breaking a Meet Record is quite an accomplishment – considering a number of the meets hosted the North American championships as well. There were FIFTY Meet Records broken in Saint John, testifying to the high quality of the championships.

W70 Margaret Tosh SK broke the MR’s in all five throwing events. She broke the record in the Shot from 1998, the Discus from 1991, the Hammer from 2000, the Javelin from 1991, and the Weight Throw from 2003.
