Gold is the new black

Chantel PilonuWaterloo student athlete wins gold in the 2014 Ontario University Athletics championship

Chantel Pilon, a fifth-year Recreation and Business student, bled black and gold at the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) championship last month. She earned a gold medal for her pentathlon performance, breaking several personal best records and breaking the uWaterloo women's pentathlon record of 3,483 points. She then went on to represent uWaterloo at the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) championships and once again broke the new varsity record with 3,494 points.

Having broken the varsity record a week before the OUA championship, she was a strong contender for a medal going into this year's OUA, on February 22. Chantel started her events off with a personal best in the 60m hurdles with a time of 9.45 seconds, and continued to deliver impressive performances including a personal best in the long jump, and first-place performances in both the shot put and 800m events. Check out her 800m race.

Chantel also represented the Warriors at the CIS championships on March 6-8 in Edmonton for women's pentathlon and 4x400m women’s relay. Her performances impressed many and even broke her own varsity record. Read more about Chantel's performances in the Athlete of the Week spotlight, on the Waterloo Warriors website and in the Trentonian.
