Quebec sprinter Audrey Leduc completes Canada Games gold-medal hat trick

Leduc also finished fifth in Saturday’s women’s long jump dominated by Ontario’s Trinity Shadd-Ceres with a record-breaking leap of 6.40 metres.

Men’s hurdles winner Craig Thorne of New Brunswick and runner-up David Adeleye of Ontario both went under the Games record of 14.09 seconds with Thorne setting a new mark of 13.83 seconds.

Manitoba’s Madisson Lawrence beat a 33-year-old heptathlon points record en route to gold. Lawrence scored 5,655 points over seven events to better Stephanie Bond’s previous mark by 222 points. Lawrence also won long-jump silver behind Shadd-Ceres.

Alberta middle-distance runner Eric Lutz collected his second gold medal of the Games in as many days. He closed the gap on competitors with less than a lap to go to take the men’s 800 metres after winning Friday’s 1,500.

Ontario thrower Trinity Tutti broke the Games discus record she set back in 2017 with a new mark of 54.26 metres en route to victory.

B.C. golfers completed a golden sweep Saturday. Cooper Humphreys took the men’s individual title and Tina Jiang the women’s.

They and teammates Lauren Kim and Ethan Posthumus combined for another victory in the mixed team event.

Ontario dominated rowing Saturday by winning all but one of the day’s seven finals. The host province continued to top the medals table.

The 16-day, multi-sport event featuring teams from all provinces and territories concludes Sunday with more events before the evening’s closing ceremonies.
