Championship log: Gold in pentathlon (4168 pts) / bronze in 4x400m relay / 4th in shot put / 6th in long jump / 7th in high jump
Niki Oudenaarden wrapped up her university career with another dominant performance, winning the pentathlon by nearly 400 points and adding a relay bronze medal at the 2019 U SPORTS track and field championships in Winnipeg.
Oudenaarden’s pentathlon score of 4,168 points set a new facility record at the University of Manitoba fieldhouse and was just over 200 points shy of Jessica Zelinka’s U SPORTS record of 4,380. It beat her Canada West-winning score by eight points and is one of the top 50 performances in the world this year.
And she wasn’t done there: Oudenaarden went on to win a bronze medal with the Dinos in the 4 x 400-metre relay and finished fourth in the shot put, sixth in long jump, and seventh in high jump.
