COVID-19 Reduced 2021 Victoria International Track Classic Fields
Due to COVID travel restrictions, the 2021 Victoria International Track Classic will be staged with reduced fields, but the organizers assured World-Track that fans should still brace themselves for a competitive and exciting evening of competition.
Among the featured storylines at the meeting is the women’s 800m, which will see Olympic hopeful Lindsey Butterworth seeking the automatic Olympic qualifying standard of 1:59.50.

Butterworth has been consistent thus far this outdoor season, with three times faster than 2:01.00, but the 28-year-old’s objective is to join the five other Canadian women who have ever broken two minutes in the 800. She has a personal best of 2:00.31, set in 2019.
Elise Coates, who owns a personal best of 2:02.07, will also start in the event, while Maya Vizina will act as the pacer.
The women’s 1500m at the 2021 Victoria International Track Classic is also expected to be in the spotlight with Mariah Kelley, Courtney Hufsmith, Gen Lalonde, and Regan Yee chasing the automatic Olympic qualifying standard of 4:04.20.
Meanwhile, the throwing events will take place at the Tournament Capital Centre in
Kamloops, due to COVID protocols (50 max in the stadium).
