Stephen Evans, of the Gee-Gees track team, provided a great performance to finish off this athletics season for the Garnet and Grey, with a great come-from-behind run to finish just off the top of the podium.
The University of Ottawa track and field team participated in the U Sports National Championship from March 8-10, with 12 competing athletes.
The Gee-Gees will look to add to the U of O’s U Sports medal count for this year after the Women’s rugby gold medal and medals by Davide Casarin and Montana Champagne in swimming.
Biswal didn’t disappoint, as she exceeded the lofty expectations set before her. She finished first in the women’s 60-metre hurdle and earned a gold medal, making Gee-Gees history in the process.
“Over the past four years there’s been little to no coverage of the track and field because basically they cover the sports that bring in more revenue to the school.”
Biswal was a frontrunner in the women’s 60m hurdle from the get-go. She only solidified her status as one of the nation’s very best with her 8.45s personal best and gold medal run on day one of the tournament.
The second-year Gee-Gees pentathlon and decathlon athlete launched his own startup business called One Track Mind in September 2013.
