Ben Flanagan won the 2022 Harry Jerome Track Classic 5000m in the time of 13:24.94 bettering hometown favourite Lucas Bruchet and University of Laval’s Thomas Fafard who clocked a four-second personal best.

“I was happy with the result. Yeah, every time I come out to Vancouver, I have to race Bruchet,” chuckled Flanagan. “He races well here, but kudos to John Gay for taking them out hard and trying to get a good time. I felt good and sat and waited before taking the lead.”
