2022 Legion National Youth Track and Field Championships

August 3 to 8, 2022 -

Click on the photo to watch the video with sound.

On Friday, August 5th, 2022, the Honourable J. Michel Doyon, the Lieutenant Governor of Québec, at the Université de Sherbrooke stadium, officially launched the 44th edition of the Legion's National Youth Athletics Championship, which spanned from August 3rd to 8th 2022.

For over 50 years, The Royal Canadian Legion has encouraged young people across Canada to train and compete in athletics. Legion Nationals are recognized as the only Pan-Canadian Competition for athletes in the U16 and U18 age categories.

This year’s annual games, hosted by the University of Sherbrooke, the City of Sherbrooke and Sherbrooke Branch 010, Colonel John S. Bourque, attracted more than 600 young athletes from across the country who competed for medals in the only track and field championships in Canada.

The Hosts and the Local Preparations Committee has worked tirelessly to ensure, once again this year, an extraordinary Game, said Brian Weaver, Chairman of the Legion Sports Committee and Vice-Chairman of Dominion Command. It's good to see so many athletes returning to competition after the pandemic-forced hiatus. The Legion would like to thank its generous sponsors, including its major supporters, PIB Inc. and the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada.

These 2022 games are organized by the Royal Canadian Legion, the Dominion, and Provincial Command in concert with the Fédération Québécoise d'athlétisme du Québec. The competition started from the Legionnaires' support and promotion of youth sports as a wholesome activity to help children whose fathers or mothers were serving overseas or who had served in the Canadian Armed Forces.

This year's championship commemorates the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Dieppe. Because of the ground lost in Europe, the Allies launched on August 19, 1942, a raid on several fronts, of which Canada provided the most troops. More than 900 Canadian soldiers lost their lives, and more than 3,300 casualties were recorded there. This reality is an undercurrent of this year's Legion Nationals and a reminder of the great possibilities the sacrifices in Dieppe have given us all. The medals given to the winning athletes were designed to reflect the theme of this anniversary.

The Quebec team had a total of 20 male athletes and 20 female athletes from across the province and won more than 16 medals. The female athlete from Quebec, Sofia Agudelo from Laval, won 3 gold medals one from the 80-meter hurdles, one from the 200-meter hurdles and one from the 4 X 100-meter relay events. For her accomplishments, Sofia was awarded at the banquet, the “Leroy Washburn” trophy, given to the best female athlete of the 44th Legion National Youth Athletics Championships.

André Barrière, from Laval, was the head coach who was responsible for the competition level team, along with assistant coaches Laurence Normandin, from Saguenay and Geneviève Gagné, from Quebec. The administrative, logistical and activity aspects were the responsibility of Robert Trépanier of Shawinigan Branch 044, Lieutenant-Colonel Robert Grondin CD, and Maxime Pivin of Granby and Catherine Jonckeau of Bromont.
