About me

In 2012 Geoff Harris won the Canadian National Olympic Trials, qualifying him for the 2012 London Olympic Games. In London he proceeded to run a personal best in the first round, advancing him to
the Semi-Finals. His first Olympics saw him finish 17th overall, an improvement of 20 places ahead of his ranking going into the Games. 2012 was his most successful year to date with 10 of his all -time best performances, and his first National Championship Gold medal. Geoff’s rise to the elite international level over the last five years has resulted in him competing for Canada on six National teams, and in dozens of international races.
Geoff began his ascendency to the top middle distance ranks in 2006, when he was ranked as the fastest junior in North America. However, his career has not been without challanges; after an injury plagued 2010 and 2011 season, Geoff was able to bounce back in 2012 to achieve two of his long time goals: 1) becoming a National Champion, and
2) representing Canada at the Olympics. The future holds a wealth of opportunity for Geoff as he continues his journey as one of the top 800m runners in Canadian history. His success at the 2012 London Olympic Games will help propel him towards qualifying and attending some of the largest international meets over the next four years in preparation for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
