This is HUGE!

Congratulations, Shawn, on your latest Canadian Outdoor record, and World Leader mark! :yes:

Quite the backdrop in the vid with the Stars and Stripes and Lone Star flags, but there should have been a Maple Leaf flag next to them! :idea:

For the record, Shawn was born in Toronto Canada, contrary to several news reports this week that he was born in Texas. He does have dual citizenship, but has chosen to compete for Canada rather than the USA.

And I'm very glad that he's made this choice! :D :heart: :star:

GO CANADA GO !!!

Thanks Kirk for your comment about this new outdoor NR... (So, I've change the title of this topic)
I think the first face-off with RL will be a great thing to look at !
