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.
