This summer, Calvin Reimer, one of our summer students, was tasked with making a Top Ten performances by Manitoban’s ranking for each track and field event.
The project was first started with one of our former AM summer students gathering results through the internet. It was then passed on to Calvin to carry on. After gathering all the results (mainly using Athletics Canada, Trackie, and the Athletics Manitoba records), he consulted some of our more veteran AM members. They were able to provide him with some additional results that were missed and others that are still pending (requiring proof).
Athletics Manitoba is now at a point where we have decided to publish the results we have thus far. A few disclaimers need to be made along with its publication. Firstly, these lists are not 100% accurate, and we know that. Unfortunately, with much of our province’s athletic history outdating the internet and a mishap in our past where results were lost, it has made the gathering process extremely difficult and at some points nearly impossible. What we do know is that all of the results you see, have been verified with an official result/source (i.e., not just a close guess).
Secondly, you will notice some indoor results in mainly outdoor events (such as the 200m and 400m). We decided to keep these results as we wanted to make sure we weren’t missing these incredible achievements. Furthermore, we decided not to create an indoor 200m and 400m meter category as these events aren’t run in the USport division where much of our results reside.
With this in mind, if after reviewing the lists below you see a result that you believe is missing, please let us know! We will need proof of the result (i.e., physical result, newspaper clipping, etc.). We know that this makes the process much more difficult but needs to be in place to ensure the integrity of our publication.
Please contact Michael at email@example.com with proof of any outstanding results.
