We received the following and in keeping up with the world of amateur sports we wanted to share.

Enjoy the read and “thanks” for the press release:

On this third week of April, Canadian track and field athletes gained momentum as they all began their drive for July’s Paris Olympic Games.

She will now compete in the World Relays Championships in Nassau, Bahamas which is the Olympic Qualification event where Canada will contest the men’s and women’s 4x100m and 4x400m as well as the mixed 4x400m on May 4th and 5th. 27 Canadian sprinters will travel to the Bahamas in just over a week.

The top 14 teams at the World Athletics Relays Bahamas 24 will automatically qualify for places at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. 

Teams will have two opportunities to qualify in Nassau; if they’re unsuccessful on day one, another chance will be provided on day two.

The remaining two places in each relay discipline will be awarded based on top lists during the qualification period (31 December 2022 – 30 June 2024).
