Crystal Emmanuel Targeting Canada’s 100m National Record

MONTREAL — Crystal Emmanuel recently secured yet another Canadian title, but the sprint star is targeting more success.

MONTREAL — Crystal Emmanuel recently secured yet another Canadian title, but the sprint star is targeting more success.

Emmanuel bagged her 12th 100m national crown when she flashed to an impressive 11.17 seconds to win at the Canada championships last month, but believes she is on course to break the nation’s record before the season is over.

Prior to her winning performance, the 27-year-old posted 11.16 in the heats and she is buzzing with confidence about her current form.

The Canadian record of 10.98 seconds was set by Angela Bailey in 1987, but Emmanuel, whose personal best is 11.11, established a year ago, is convinced that she can run under-11 seconds for the first time in her career this year.

“I still have some more work to do to get ready for Pan Ams and Worlds but I’m in a good place right now,” the Toronto native said after winning the 100m.

“Me and my team are going hard for Canada. I want the record and I know I’m going to get it this season,” she added.

Emmanuel was hoping to win the sprint double at the Canadian Championships but pulled out of the 200m with a slight injury.

She already owns the national record for the 200m with a personal best time of 22.50 seconds.

Meanwhile, Emmanuel finished seventh over the half-lap at the IAAF 2017 World Championships and has helped Canada to make the 4x100m finals at the 2013 and 2015 world championships.

Chris is a retired coach with many years of experience following track and field. Enjoys traveling with his wife, two children and grand kids.
