Fresh off setting a school record for the University of Wisconsin in the pentathlon, Langley’s Georgia Ellenwood sets her sights on helping Canada this weekend at the IAAF world indoor championships in Portland, Ore.
The Wisconsin junior placed second at the Big Ten indoor track and field championships with 4,392 points in the pentathlon. The score is the best posted by a Canadian athlete this season and ranks 19th in the world.
Last weekend, Ellenwood scored 4,390 points to place fourth at the NCAA indoor championships.
The world championships began March 17 and run through March 20.
The event is the last major international competition prior to this summer’s Olympic Games.
