2014 Panamerican Combined Events Cup to host senior and junior national championship

Athletics Canada announced today that 2014 Canadian championship events for the senior and junior decathlon and heptathlon will be held in Ottawa, Ont., July 3-6 as part of the Panamerican Combined Events Cup.

Carded athletes who choose to not compete at this event will be required to compete in individual events at the Canadian Track and Field Championships in Moncton, N.B.

The junior decathlon and heptathlon events at the Panamerican Combined Events Cup will serve as the selection trials for those events on Canada’s 2014 IAAF World Junior team.

This pilot project will be reviewed following the 2014 season.
