2019 Golden Shoe Awards: Rising Star—Myles Misener-Daley

The Canadian U20 400m record holder and UCLA freshman is our 2019 Rising Star recipient

At the 2019 OFSAA Track and Field championships, Myles Misener-Daley completed a three-peat. Actually, it was a triple three-peat, with the Hamilton high schooler winning gold in the 100m, 200m and 400m races–a feat known as the OFSAA triple crown, which he earned in 2017 and 2018 as well.

Misener-Daley also won OFSAA gold in the 100m and 200m in 2016, making him an 11-time OFSAA gold medallist. In his 2019 gold medal-winning 400m run, Misener-Daley broke the Canadian U20 record, posting a 45.71. A little over a month later, he broke the 400m record again, this time at the Pan Am U20 Championships, where he ran a 45.62 and won a silver medal.

The junior runner’s impressive resume attracted attention from NCAA track teams, and in late 2018, Misener-Daley accepted a full scholarship to UCLA. He started his university career in the fall of 2019, so the upcoming collegiate season will be an exciting one to watch as this young Canadian works to continue his upward trajectory on the track.
