Nova Scotia / Nunavut Command in conjunction with Dominion Command of The R.C.L. has since 1954 sponsored students and coaches and chaperones annually to attend and compete in the Royal Canadian Legion National Track and Field competitions.

Some of these athletes have gone on to compete at world championship competitions and Olympic games.

The 44th Legion National Youth Track and Field Championships, hosted by Legion Branch 010 Colonel John S Bourque, took place from August 4 to 7 in Sherbrooke, Quebec. Almost 700 athletes from across the country competed, and although the summer heat was extreme, they had a fantastic time and even broke a few records.

I am extremely proud of this young track and field team. They have worked very hard this entire season to make the standards and team selection for this national competition. They faced the best track and field athletes in Canada.

Overall, the 44th Legion National Track and Field Championships were a big success! We look forward to next year's competition back in Sherbrooke, Québec.
