Audrey Leduc took down her second national record in six weeks. In Atlanta, Leduc set the women’s 200-metre mark. She ran 22.36 seconds to win the event at the Edwin Moses Legends Meet, taking 0.14 off the Canadian record Crystal Emmanuel held since July 2017. In late April, Leduc erased a nearly 37-year-old Canadian record in the women’s 100m.

At Bernie Moore Stadium in Baton Rouge, LA Leduc improved on Angela Bailey’s national 100m sprint record with a 10.96 performance. The 25-year-old’s previous best was 11.38 from July last year in Toronto.

The Paris Olympic standard is 11.07 and 56 women and men will start in Paris in the event. Leduc opened her 2023 season with an 11.53 sprint at the Florida Relays in Gainesville, FLA. Leduc now needs to finish top three at the Canadian Olympic Trials in Montreal to cement her position on Team Canada. The meeting will take place at the Complexe Sportif Claude Robillard between June 27 and 30.
