Second-year Vike David Waller, originally from Halifax, took the 1000m race with a personal best of 2:30.56.

Asked about his tactics, he said, “sit on the pacer for 800m, then see what I have.”

In reference to carrying a piano on his back, laughing, he said, “I don’t think I was moving too fast over the final 200m.”
