A total of twenty three (25) Territorial track and field records fell, as Champs came to the end of another successful year. Athletics NWT, the governing body for Athletics in the NWT maintains the Territorial records and use the performances from NWT athletes performing at athletic events across Canada and the USA to maintain the Territorial records. Hence, an athlete breaking a meet record at the Hay River Championships will have a claim on a meet record as well as a Territorial record provided the performance surpass the record of that category.
At present the majority of the Territorial records were indeed set at both the Hay River and Forth Smith Championships and as such athletes often think that the meet records represent the Territorial records. However, over the last couple years we have seen NWT athletes participating outside of North and so we update records as often as they are broken.
