Enjoy the read:

Athletics Canada and the Canadian Olympic Committee have announced the roster of Team Canada athletics athletes nominated to compete at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games

Sensational performances at last week’s Bell Track & Field Trials in Montreal propelled some members of this team to secure their nominations, while others qualified on the back of a season of strong results and accumulating World Athletics Ranking points at competitions at home and around the world. 

The track athletes nominated today boast a stellar resume, including a combined 15 Olympic medals and 36 World Athletics Championships or World Athletics Relays medals. Returning stars include Canada’s most decorated male summer Olympic medallist, Andre De Grasse, and his fellow members of the Tokyo 2020 silver medal-winning and 2022 world champion 4×100 metre relay team, as well as 800 metre world champion Marco Arop. 

The team also boasts a strong contingent of athletes making their Olympic debut in Paris, including breakthrough sprinter Audrey Leduc, 400 metre record-breaker Christopher Morales Williams, and 100 metre hurdler Mariam Abdul-Rashid.

De Grasse, owner of six Olympic medals and five world championship medals, has qualified in the men’s 100 metres, 200 metres and 4×100 metre relay.

At the 2024 World Athletics Relays, De Grasse and his teammates earned an Olympic quota spot in the relay for Paris 2024. 

Paris 2024 will mark the third Olympic appearance for De Grasse, the defending Olympic champion in the men’s 200 metres.

Leduc has had an outstanding 2024 season, setting Canadian records in both the women’s 100 metres and 200 metres, as well as being part of the women’s 4×100 metre relay team that qualified Canada in the event for Paris 2024 at the 2024 World Athletics Relays.

Marco Arop enters his second Olympic Games as the reigning world champion in the men’s 800 metres. 

The Canadian record holder in the event is coming off a dominant performance at the 2024 Bell Track & Field Trials, securing his nomination with a national title and a Championship record time of 1:43:53.

Other track luminaries going to Paris include Olympic 5000 metres silver medallist Mohammed Ahmed, middle distance maven Charles Philibert-Thiboutot, and women’s relay teams in both the 4×100 metres and 4×400 metres.

Canada was labeled a hammer throw nation at the 2023 World Athletics Championships, with Camryn Rogers and Ethan Katzberg winning the women’s and men’s titles, respectively. 

The field event athletes for Paris 2024 also include 2024 World Indoor Champion Sarah Mitton, who earned gold in the women’s shot put this past March after taking silver at the 2023 World Athletics Championships. She owns the world-leading mark in the women’s shot put this year. 

Far from being just a throwing nation, Alysha Newman and Anicka Newell return to compete in the women’s pole vault.

Canada can also lay claim to two of the best decathletes in the world. Damian Warner returns to the Olympic Games as defending decathlon champion after setting a new Olympic record in the event and having the honour of being selected as Team Canada’s Flag Bearer for the Tokyo 2020 Closing Ceremony.

Warner is joined by reigning world champion Pierce LePage, who enters Paris 2024 looking to claim his first Olympic medal. They finished 1-2 at the 2023 World Athletics Championships. 

The streets of Paris will also feature a squad of decorated marathon runners and race walkers, nominated earlier this year, including Olympic bronze medallist Evan Dunfee and Olivia Lundman in the race walk, and Cameron Levins, Rory Linkletter, and Malindi Elmore in the men’s and women’s marathon events, respectively.

The Canadian athletics team in Paris will look to build off what was arguably Canada’s best performance in Olympic athletics history, three years ago in Tokyo. 

The team returned to Canada with two Olympic champions (Warner and De Grasse) and six medals overall (Ahmed, men’s 4×100 metre relay, Dunfee, and De Grasse). Canada also finished fifth out of 70 countries on the World Athletics Placing Table, which ranks countries by top 8 finishes.

Track and field will take place August 2 to 10 (Days 7 to 15) at the Stade de France. The men’s 20km race walk will take place on August 1 (Day 6) and the marathon race walk mixed relay will take place on August 7 (Day 12), both in the Trocadero District. 

The men’s marathon is scheduled for August 10 (Day 15) and the women’s marathon on August 11 (Day 16). The marathons will both start at the Hôtel de Ville and finish at les Invalides.

“It is a huge honour for me to congratulate the Canadian Olympic Athletics Team on their way to Paris 2024. This group, composed of veterans and young rookies, is constantly pushing the boundaries of athletic performance. Every sprint, every jump, and every throw is a testament to their relentless pursuit of excellence, fueled by the pride of representing the nation on the world stage,” said Bruny Surin, Team Canada’s Paris 2024 Chef de Mission. “The performances of these athletes at the Bell Track and Field Trials this past weekend captured our attention and hold great promise for Paris 2024. I am very eager to cheer them on and see Team Canada triumph this summer. Go, Team Canada!”

Prior to being named to Team Canada, all nominations are subject to approval by the Canadian Olympic Committee’s Team Selection Committee following its receipt of nominations by all National Sport Organizations.
