Windsor athletes shine at 2004 track meet

Kinesiology student Richard Johnston is publishing a series of articles recalling each of the nine previous occasions the St. Denis Centre hosted the CIS track and field championship, leading up to this weekend’s meet—the 10th on the UWindsor campus.

In 2004, middle distance runner Ryan McKenzie was named Male Athlete of the Meet after winning four gold medals: in the 600m, 1000m, 1500m and as the anchor of the 4x800m relay. The Lancer men took home the team title and, Johnston recounts, welcomed a new star: rookie pentathlete Jamie Adjetey-Nelson set a new CIS record in the event.
