I would like to welcome you to the online home of the Boiling Point Track Classic! This site is an easy and resourceful tool for athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers, sponsors, media outlets and fans alike. I'm confident you will find this site informative and easy to use.
Boiling Point 2013, the premier athletics competition in Canada for athletes with a physical disability, will be contested on the evening of Saturday, July 6th, 2013. In our first six years athletes and coaches from 15 different nations have given their praise for our organization and hospitality. Combined with the 7 World Records that have been broken during competition here since 2007, it’s easy to understand how Boiling Point has cemented itself as a Global leader within the international calendar of Para-athletics competitions.
We here at Boiling Point continue to strive to host the ultimate showcase of our great sport. The fact that over 60 Paralympic medals have been won by athletes that have previously competed at Boiling Point alone is outstanding. The addition of our focus on coaching education and having the coaches of 10 World Record holders that have either attended or presented at the Boiling Point Coaches Symposium clearly demonstrates we are meeting our objective!
It brings me great pleasure to know that athletes from all classifications feel welcome and have competed at Boiling Point over the years. This is NOT simply a competition for wheelchair athletes alone. I also take great pride in the fact that in 2012 we were again able to have both the Men's & Women's shot put events contested for prize money!
I couldn't be happier with my Organizing Committee and their tireless efforts to bring this event to life. On behalf of that committee I would like to thank our partners, sponsors and volunteers who have believed in our vision and made the Boiling Point Track Classic a reality.
See you in July!
