Roller Sports Canada held its annual Canadian Outdoor Championships Saturday through Monday.
Toronto’s Sarah Hopkins was crowned Senior Women’s Champion while brothers Jesse Pauley and Jade Pauley were crowned Senior and Junior Champions.
Many Canadian records were set, most noteably in the Freshmen Girls’ category. Paisley Perrie and Bailin Xie combined to break the records in all four distances. Logan Wanless and Trevor Scott each set records in the Primary Boys’ distance races. Lisa Meyer re-wrote the record books for the Grand Master women while Jamie Gavinho and Elizabeth Perrie each broke a record in the Intermediate category. Jade Pauley set two records in the Junior Men’s while Peter Doucet was the only to break a record in the Senior Men’s distances.
The track racing was capped off with relay races. The Freshmen Boys & Girls and the Senior Men’s winning teams set the national records. Due to an error in number of laps skated, the Senior Women’s mark was not set.
