This weekend is the 2019 World Relays and Canada is sending an extremely strong team. The team is hoping to use this meet to qualify several relay squads for the 2019 World Championships in Doha and they’ve got a good shot.
For the first time in its history, World Relays will have equal numbers of men’s and women’s events in 2019, with the addition of the shuttle hurdles (which feature two men and two women running 110m hurdles in a relay format) and the 2x2x400m relay.
Day 1 schedule (local time is PST)
Canadian record holder and Olympic medallist Andre De Grasse is also set to compete this weekend. The World Relays will be his first national team since pulling himself from the Commonwealth Games in 2018 due to injury.
