Gilbert named Canada’s head coach for worlds
OTTAWA — Olympic relay champion Glenroy Gilbert has been named Canada’s head coach for the world track and field championships, while Kim Cousins and Rick Reelie will be Canada’s co-head coaches at the world para championships. Athletics Canada remains without a head coach since the firing of Peter Eriksson in December. Gilbert, an Ottawa native, ran on the Canadian 4x100-metre relay team that won Olympic gold in Atlanta in 1996. He’s worked with Canada’s relay program for several years.
