Brogan MacDougall ran away from the field, which included runners more than two years older than her, at the 2017 Canadian Track and Field Championships.

The 16-year-old from Kingston, Ont. scorched a 9:21.84 performance in the U20 women’s 3,000m to win the national title. She is a youth-aged athlete but competed in an older classification at the national championships. The time was an eight-second personal best – previously 9:29.65 – for the Physi-Kult runner who will represent Canada at the Commonwealth Youth Games in the Bahamas later this month.
