As far as the athletics calendar goes, 2022 has been a very busy year. This is especially true during spring through summer with the usual one-off professional track meets, the 13-meet Diamond League series as well as the World Athletics Championships, Commonwealth Games, and European Championships. Cross country season is night upon us. The road circuits with the fall and spring marathon seasons keep the athletics community busy. Most recently the North American Central American and Caribbean Athletics Association Track and Field Championships (NACAC) saw Athletics Canada field a 40-person team that went on to win 14 medals.
The fourth edition of the NACAC Track and Field Championship came to a close on Sunday.
