St. Catharines, ON and Niagara will have a rooting interest in the 5,000 m and 10,000 m track events at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games later on this summer.

Today, Mohammed Ahmed was among the 65 athletes named to represent Team Canada in track and field. It will be the  25-year-old’s second Olympic Games — he competed in the 10,000m at 2012 London Olympic Games, placing 18th. Last summer, Ahmed won gold in the 10,000m at the 2015 Toronto Pan Am Games.

The Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) and Athletics Canada announced the team going to Rio following the Canadian Championships and Selection Trials which took place in Edmonton over the weekend.

Reid Coolsaet

Reid Coolsaet, Canadian Olympic marathoner, was talking about training at the Skylon Tower Health and Fitness Expo back in 2012 at the Niagara Falls International Marathon.

Also named to the team is marathon runner Reid Coolsaet. in 2013, Coolsaet, from Hamilton, ON, set the course record for the half marathon at the Niagara Falls International Marathon: 1:03:11. Amazing!

So excited for Olympics! A lot of people are calling this group of athletes one of the strongest teams to represent Canada in track and field events. Congrats and good luck to all the athletes selected to Team Canada.

Gotta run! Rob
