Jun 24 2013 - Caleb Jones wins National Bronze
Caleb Jones led the way for New Brunswick at the Canadian Track and Field Championships during the weekend, winning a bronze medal in javelin during a meet he said will have a huge impact on growing the sport in this province.
“To have the national championships here in Moncton, it’s the biggest thing.
“This is what’s really going to improve the sport here in New Brunswick, having meets like this,” said the 22-year-old from Saint John.
“I wanted to come out with the other New Brunswick athletes and try to show that we can do track and field here, it can be a full-time sport. It doesn’t have to put on the back burner with hockey and other sports that have more glamour, this can be your sport. It takes things like this to show the community here that it’s fun, that it’s great. Some of the best athletes in Canada are track and field athletes. It shows you can excel in this and have a great time doing it.”
Jones, of the Saint John Track and Field Club, certainly had a great time on the field Saturday night, throwing a personal best of 73.92 metres in his first throw, which would end up being good enough for the bronze.
