Sixteen competition records, two automatic Olympic standards (Crystal Emmanuel 11.11 in the 100m and Regan Yee 9:27.54 in the 3000m steeplechase), a Canadian record in the women's 3000m steeplechase (Regan Yee), and four others qualified (Alicia Brown, 4x400m relay; Alycia Butterworth, 3000m steeplechase; Madeleine Kelly, 800m; Noelle Montcalm, 400m hurdles). We can say "mission accomplished" and a big thank you to the officials and volunteers who contributed to the success of La Classique d'athlétisme de Montréal 2021.

In addition to these competition records and tremendous performances by the athletes, the organizing committee is proud to have been chosen as the stadium competition par excellence at the FQA Gala Athlètas in November 2021. Thanks to our devoted team of volunteers supervised by the Club d'athlétisme Saint-Laurent Sélect.

The Montreal Athletics Classic was also the best Canadian competition in the World Athletics world rankings for overall quality of results. At the end of 2021, the Classic was indeed ranked 94th in the world by the international federation's "competition performance rankings".

Carried out in the context of a pandemic, the committee was able to put in place safe sanitary conditions for all participants. Despite the still complex pandemic situation, we are optimistic that the Classique d'athlétisme de Montréal will continue to progress over the next few years.
