August 15, 2016: a date to remember for Acadians

Today was National Acadian Day and on this special day, the only "official" Acadian at Rio Olympic Games, Geneviève Lalonde, finished in 16th position in the 3000-metre steeplechase! Go go go!

Geneviève has a very rough competition today, the weather was very hot this morning at Rio. It was just very fun that her final was today on August 15 and it has been very exciting even for New Brunswickers. Keep watching Geneviève Lalonde. She'll participate to the next Olympic Games in 4 years, in Tokyo. This year, she had to face extreme heat and in 4 years, it will be extreme pollution... What's the point to put top elite athletes to such terrible conditions? It ruin it all. Make athletes compete in proper decent places and conditions, like Quebec City, Montreal... But not in third world countries or where clean air to breathe is just... missing...
