Olympic relay champion Glenroy Gilbert has been named Canada’s head coach for the world track and field championships, while Kim Cousins and Rick Reelie will be Canada’s co-head coaches at the world para championships.
Athletics Canada remains without a head coach since the firing of Peter Eriksson in December
Gilbert, an Ottawa native, ran on the Canadian 4×100-metre relay team that won Olympic gold in Atlanta in 1996. He’s worked with Canada’s relay program for several years.
“We have great momentum coming off our best Olympic Games in modern history, the focus continues to be high performance, driven by results,” Gilbert said Friday in a release.
