Laura Dickinson named to Team Canada
Miramichi's Laura Dickinson has been selected to Team Canada for the 2018 Pan American Cross Country Cup, taking place Feb. 17 in San Salvador, El Salvador.
2017 has been a phenomenal year for the young runner, both at the national and international level.
Dickinson won the 3,000m steeplechase and 5,000m titles at the Canadian U20 Track & Field Championships, both in championship record times.
She went on to carry the flag for Team New Brunswick at the opening ceremonies of the Canada Games, where she won silver in both of her events.
On the international scene, Dickinson remains flawless, she won the gold medal for Team Canada in the 5,000m at the Pan American U20 Track & Field Championships earlier this year in Peru.
Now, she'll be racing on the Junior Women's team at the Pan American Cross Country Cup.
