Seguin works on his pole vaulting form, hoping for season to resume

To stay in top form and in homes of the competitive track and field season resuming from its break due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Martintown’s Brennan Seguin has been working out, along with his University of Guelph teammates, informally, under the guidance of the Gryphons coach.

Back in early March, the Gryphons track and field team, at the U-Sports championships held in Alberta, captured the national men’s and women’s titles. It was the school’s third straight year topping Canadian universities.

In the men’s pole vault, Seguin placed fourth overall, clearing 4.73 metres. The winner of the event was Daniel Gleason, of the York Lions, who cleared 5.13 metres.

Seguin is a graduate of Char-Lan DHS and was trained during his high school years by Rory Blackadder. This was the vaulter’s second year at Guelph. In 2019 at nationals, held in Montreal, he earned bronze with a 4.96 m jump.
