Forsey Top Canadian Junior In 3000 Meter

Running in a twilight meet at the California University track in Pennsylvania on Monday, Jillian Forsey ran the 3000 metres in nine minutes 29.86 seconds, breaking her own junior record for the distance set earlier this month and also eclipsing the senior record set in 1984 by Nicola Will.

This performance currently ranks the 18 year-old as the top junior performer in Canada at 3000 meters. She is also ranked second nationally at 5000 metres among junior women.
