Toronto’s Justyn Knight leads all Canadians in IAAF performance ranking so far during the 2018 indoor season, with his mile race of 3:55.82, which he ran at the 2018 BU John Thomas Terrier Classic, last weekend. The points performance level is 1184. Knight finished second, while fellow Canadian Corey Bellemore finished fourth in the time of 3:57.20.

The national record is currently owned by Nathan Brennan, who in 2014 ran 3:54.82.

Athletics Canada set the qualification standard for the IAAF World Indoor Track and Field Championships to 3:39.50 for the 1500m distance. For the mile, a performance of 3:55.00 is considered equal. The Syracuse University student owns a 1500m best of 3:39.23 from his performance in Charlottesville in 2016.

Knight is also very strong in the 5,000m distance. He owns a 13:17.51, which is an 1148 point performance.

Django Lovett moved to the number two on the list with a great high jump of 2.29m in Seattle as Shawn Barber improved his season best in the pole vault to 5.60m in the Berlin. Tim Nedow moved over the 20m barrier in the shot put with 20.37m.
