Red Deer’s Jeremiah Lauzon fifth in 200 at U20 Pan Am Games

In his first appearance representing Canada, Red Deer’s Jeremiah Lauzon showed he can hang with the best.

The 19-year-old, racing for the first time at the Pan American U20 Championships in Costa Rica, made a trip to the 200 metre final.

Lauzon qualified for the finals with time of 21.01 seconds. In the final, the talented local sprinter clocked in at 21.18, good for fifth place. He was just short of his personal best, 20.90 that he ran earlier this summer in Calgary.

He also raced in the 4X100m relay, where the Canadian group finished fifth in a time of 41.39. Lauzon ran the third leg of the race.

Next for Lauzon is a trip to the Canadian Track and Field Championships from July 25-28.
