Lions to take on international fields

Lions athletes will be in action on two continents tomorrow, competing in Belgium and British Columbia.

Competing at the Flanders Cup – Meeting Voor Mon in Leaven, Belgium tomorrow will be Sekou Kaba, Oluwasegun Makinde, and Farah Jacques. For Kaba and Jacques, this is their third stop on their European tour while Makinde joined the duo following the Commonwealth Games.

Sekou has had a successful tour, having run a hundredth of a second of his personal best in the 110m hurdles at his first competition last week in Ninove, Belgium and followed it up with a victory Wednesday night in Copenhagen. Jacques made the podium in both competitions while Oluwasegun placed fourth in the 100m in Copenhagen.

Makinde and Jacques will line up in the 100m while Kaba will race in his customary 110m hurdles.

Back in Canada, hurdler Ashlea Maddex is set to race at the North American, Central American and Caribbean (NACAC) Under 23 championships. This is Maddex’s second time racing Canada at the NACAC championships. She previously won bronze two years ago in Mexico. Her final is set for 5:20 pm eastern.
