Emma Pegg Wins 800m Bronze At National Championships
Emma Pegg can add a bronze medal to her trophy case, after taking third at the Canadian Track and Field National Championships in the U20 800m race in Montreal.
Pegg crossed the line in 2:08.88, behind British Columbia’s Alisa Lyesina (2:08.34) and Ontario’s Tiana LoStracco (2:07.68).
Both of the athletes who finished ahead of Pegg, are two years older than the 16-year-old Emma Pegg.
Pegg recently won a silver medal at the Ontario Legion Track and Field meet in the 800m, as well as gold in the 1500m, and also won silver at the NACAC Championships in Mexico earlier this summer representing Canada’s U18 team.
