Reed’s 800m win among the highlights in Burnaby

In one of the most anticipated events of the Harry Jerome International Track and Field Classic, marquee athlete Gary Reed seized the victory in the men's 800m with a time of 1:45.95.

"It felt quicker than that but I'll take it. It's not too bad. It was great competition. Things are coming along slowly but surely," he said after the race.

The meet, taking place just two weeks before the Canadian and U.S. national championships, served as a tune-up for many elite athletes on both sides of the border.
