    Are you part of the Wexit movement? Sounds like it.

    I get the sentiment, however I would argue the notion if you are referencing Chesoo in this case. Matt is very much a coach to this guy, and there is no way Leonard would have come as far as he has without the mentorship he has received from Norminton. Might not be born in Alberta, but I would definitely argue his success has been made possible because of the opportunities given to him in the province; and because of the people who have helped him get to where he is. He was good obviously, but an imported "ringer" not so sure...

    And I am guessing Travaglini is someone who would be thought of in the debate too.

    Both Chesoo and Travaglini were not hand picked by Alberta programs; they choose to move here and got their breakthroughs under the tutelage of the different systems they entered. Cherry-picking talent not so much...

    Bertil's Kenyan pipeline in Lethbridge was also less of a talent search and more of a humanitarian mission if I am not mistaken. It just so happened that running was the line of contact that allowed those efforts to come to fruition. Recruiting runners WAS NOT the main goal.

    You mean like Marriya Jenkins? Vanessa Trofimenkoff? Kirk Sundt? Lesley Koopmans? Keiran McDonald? Alex Gordachuck? Jamie Wigmore? Mirelle Martins? Alex Harding? Jodi Sanguin? Jordanna Cota? Fiona Bensen? Jacques Sayman?

    HERE IS WHAT I THINK IS GOING TO HAPPEN... IF I AM TO PUT MY SMART MONEY ON SOMEONE, IT WILL BE MY BOY WHO CANT GO WITHOUT MILK THAT IS SOY; WHO REPRESENTS THE ICONIC CALLOSUS OF CLOUT - HE IS THE INCREDIBLE KING OF STING AND TWILIGHT AS WELL AS YOUNG PROTEGE OF TWYLA THARP... HIS FAVORITE MOTHER BLEEPING INSTRUMENT? THE HARP...

    HIS NAME IS LEONARDO CHESOO; GOLDEN BOY PRODUCTIONS OF THE ALBERTA COLLEGE ATHLETIC CONFERENCE WHO HAS EARN THE TITLE OF CROSS COUNTRY RUNNER OF THE YEAR... HE RECIEVED THE SILVER MEDAL LAST YEAR AND WAS ASKED ABOUT WHETHER IT MOTIVATED HIM OR NOT TO GET THE GOLD. HE STATED; "YES - I AM HUNGRY FOR THE GOLD AND I AM WILLING TO GIVE UP MY FORTH NUT TO DO IT."

    WELL YOU HEARD IT FROM HIM AND NOW FROM ME AND YOU CAN THANK ME LATER BUT THE FOCUS ISN'T ON ME OR YOU; IT'S ON LEONARDO CHESOO YOU SELFISH ATTENTION WHORES.

    I FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT HE WILL WIN THE GOLD, ACHIEVE HONORS IN SCHOOL, AND WILL BE THE MALE RUNNER OF THE YEAR ONCE AGAIN.

    SO FRIENDS, STEP ASIDE - BECAUSE IT IS LEONARD CHESSO'S TIME TO SHINE BABY - BRIGHTER THEN A DIAMOND.

    BACK TO YOU CROSS COUNTRY UNIVERSE...

    1x2400m @ 6:31 lead, 6:40, 6:42, 6th man
    3x800 @ avg. 2:10
    4x200 @ avg. 27s

    BRUH these times are naaaasty. Watch out, these boys are playing around, they are coming with a MEAN taper.

    I thought the organizers did a great job in tough conditions to put on a top notch event. The course was great for spectators and was a good challenge for the athletes (a little bit of everything). I thought both the individual womens and mens races were exciting, I was truly in awe of Carter Free's unwillingness to give up! I thought he was done when Leonard surged after 2k and then again at 4k. Awesome battle between the two.

    Congrats to everyone that took part and to the Lethbridge ladies and Fanshawe men for taking home the team titles.

    It's -14C, there's 6 inches of fresh snow on the ground, and it's snowing and blowing. And now we have Lenny and Carter (both clad in short shorts) just wailing on each other ovet 8 frozen and hilly kms. It doesn't get any better than that, sports fans.

    The Fanshawe boys crushed the field. The women's individual individial and team races were both nailbiters. Fans were running around the course cheering on the runners.

    Ya, it was truly one for the ages.

    Here's an unofficial video that captures the vibe of the event ... at least from the home team's perspective.
