Emma Galbraith breaks Canadian Record

With her 4th place finish at the New Balance Collegiate Invitational 1000m, Emma Galbraith has done more than just break the University of Ottawa record with her time of 2:46.89 as reported earlier. Upon further review, Emma has dipped under Elise Braithwaite’s Canadian Junior indoor record of 2:47.16, a mark which had  stood for nearly 28 years.

Emma’s time, which is pending ratification by Athletics Canada, the governing body for track and field in Canada, would be the only Canadian Junior Indoor Record held by an Ottawa Lion. However, she would join four members who currently hold Canadian Outdoor Junior Records – Oluseyi Smith and Todd Pyper (4x100m), Danelle Woods (2000m Steeplechase) and Mike Woods (1500m and Mile).
