2003 Track and Field Rankings
A reminder to clubs that when posting results they include the athlete’s year of birth, club affiliation and wind readings for 100, 200, hurdles, Long Jump and Triple Jump. This helps make the rankings more accurate and ensures that they are posted quickly. It is time consuming to look up every athlete’s age and club and track down the wind readings. Also when posting results please include the date each event occurred. It is not accurate to say for example, that Juvenile Men’s High Jump happened on June 21-22. For athletes that went to school in the USA, or competed at meets outside of Canada, please submit any performances that do not appear on the current rankings. Suggestions, additions and corrections will gratefully be received at
