Langley, British Columbia — Aaron Brown won his second gold medal in two days at the Canadian Athletics Championships on Sunday, winning 200 meters.
A 30-year-old from Toronto ran the best season of 20.03 seconds and won his 10th national title. He won the gold medal at 100 meters on Saturday.
Jerome Blake, a 4x100 relay brown teammate who won the silver medal at the Tokyo Olympics, won 200 silver at 20.32.
There was no Olympic 200 champion Andre De Grasse in this field. Andre De Grasse announced earlier in the week that it tested positive for COVID-19.
The wind was just inside the statutory limit at 1.8 meters per second. Natasha McDonald in Mississauga, Ontario, won the Women's 200 at 22.67.
The Canadian Championships will be the last time athletes meet the criteria or score important ranking points to secure a spot in the World Athletics Championships team starting July 15 in Eugene, Oregon. It was a chance.
