Alexia Lamothe ran the race of her young life on Thursday and in the process broke a record that has stood for the past 16 years.

The Grade 12 Cairine Wilson Secondary School student managed to bounce back from a dicey morning heat in the 100-metre hurdles at the NCSSAA high school championships on Thursday to shave nearly three-tenths of a second off the old record previously held by Anne Lebel.

After the race, Lamothe surprised even herself at how fast she ran.

"The morning heat didn't go quite so well, I clipped one of the hurdles, but the final was amazing. I knew I ran fast, I just didn't know how fast," said Lamothe, who stopped the clock at 13.68 seconds.

The Ottawa Lions Track and Field Club member has benefitted from being able to train inside the dome at Louis-Riel high school during the winter months.

The 17-year-old is a hurdling specialist. Besides setting a record in the 100-metre hurdles she also placed second in the 400-metre event, which means she will try to qualify for the OFSAA provincial championships in both distances at next week's East Regional meet.

Her goal is to return to the OFSAA provicial championships and compete for a medal. She placed seventh in the 100-metre hurdles last year and 11th in the 400-metre hurdles.

"This is my last year so I'd love to finish my high school career off with a medal," says Lamothe. "That would be amazing."

Lamothe was one of four east end athletes who won two events at the city championships. Claudia Caird from Graneau won the midget girls 100 and 400 metres; Keira Christie-Galloway from St. Matthew won the midget girls 80-metre hurdles and the long jump; and Gloucester High School's Farah Abdulkarim won the senior boys 3000 metres and the open boys 2000-metre steeplechase.

École secondaire Louis-Riel led the way in terms of winning the most gold medals with four. Bedi Ndinsil won the junior boys 200 metres; Benjamin Dufour took home gold in the 80-metre hurdles; Benjamin Beaudoin won the junior boys shot put; and Samuel Obiang won the midget boys shot put.

Othe single event winers include Ian White from Colonel By Secondary School in the midget boys 200-metres; Steve Nkusi from Garneau in the senior boys high jump; and Andrew Oliviera from Samuel Genest in the senior boys shot put.

All the competitors will be looking to finish in the top four at next week's OFSAA East Regionals to qualify for the provincial championships.
