Canadian Marathon Record holder -- malindi Elmore heading back to olympics
Malindi Elmore was one of the fastest ever Canadian women at the 1,500m distance and competed for Canada at the 2004 Olympics, 2006 Commonwealth Games and the 2011 Pan Am Games. She ‘retired’ from professional running on the track in 2012 at the age of 32 but now at 39 years of age — and a mom of two young boys — has returned to road running ‘for fun’ and a re-invented marathon runner.
Canadian Marathon Record Holder
On January 19th, 2020 Malindi shattered the Canadian women's marathon record by over two minutes in a time of 2:24:50 and all but booking her ticket to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Competing in Tokyo will make it 17 years between appearances for the 41 yr-old mother of two young boys.
There were signs of her progress as a marathoner, in 2019, Elmore ran her debut marathon in Houston, Texas with an impressive time of 2:32, won the Canadian half-marathon championships and smashed the course record at Vancouver’s Eastside 10k in 32:44.
9th Place at the Tokyo Olympics
The women's Olympic marathon standard is 2:29.30. Elmore, whose Canadian record of 2:24:50 is well under that mark, was nominated to the Canadian Olympic team with two other Canadian women to make up one of the strongest group of runners Canada has ever fielded.
The Tokyo 2020 Marathon took place early in the morning of August 7th in Sapporo, and the race temperature played a big factor from the start. Malindi overcame the scorching Sapporo heat to finish ninth with a time of two hours, 30 minutes and 59 seconds. It is the best Olympic marathon finish by a Canadian woman in a non-boycott Games ever.
