The CMA has selected co-winners of Athlete of the Month honours for January, both of whom set senior Canadian women’s records at the Houston Marathon despite the fact that they are now in the W35 category.

Olympian, Malindi Elmore broke the Canadian marathon record with a blistering time of 2:24:50, more than two minutes faster than the previous record. Malindi’s run was especially impressive considering she will celebrate her 40th birthday in March.

In the half-marathon, Natasha Wodak became the first Canadian woman to break 70 minutes in 1:09:41. Natasha had already set a W35 record in January at the BC Championships near Victoria by running 8k in 25:55.

.
Honourable mention goes to 2019 NCCWMA award winning sprint star, Karla Del Grande, who continues her record-breaking tear in 2020 with a new W65 record in the 60m of 8.87s. The age-grading on Karla’s sprint is an incredible 104.27%.

Two Canadians Named 2019 World Masters Athletics Athletes of the Year

Canadian athletes are golden again. On the heels of their wins as Athletes of the Year awarded by North, Central American and Caribbean Masters Athletics (NCCMA) for 2019, Earl Fee and Karla Del Grande have done it again.

Based on nominations received from around the world, World Masters Athletics (WMA) recently named Earl Fee (M90) the 2019 Best Master winner in the Overall category for the Men; Karla Del Grande (W65) is the 2019 Sprints Best Master winner for the Women and she also placed second in the Overall category.

Earl Fee entered a new age group in 2019 (M90) and accomplished his goal of breaking indoor and outdoor 400m and 800m world records. In addition to wanting “to be a good example and inspiration for other master athletes and particularly older seniors,” Fee had another goal in 2019: “To work diligently towards my best fitness and preparation in 2019 to be fit as a result for the special WMA championship in Toronto in 2020.”

2019 was also a fantastic year for Karla Del Grande. She set Age Group World Records in 200m indoors (29.73), 400m indoors (1:08.39) and 400m outdoors (1:08.08).

One other Canadian athlete was named in second place in her event – Kris Kozell (W65) received the honour for her specialty of Race Walks!

The CMA extends its congratulations to our Canadian winners on an outstanding year.
