Rimar Christie (St. Michael Bridgetown, Barbados) was selected the Most Outstanding Performer winning the 100 meters (10.64) and 200 meters (21.47) and leading the Crusaders to a win in the 4×100 relay (41.72), which he anchored. He will now compete in the NCAA Division II national outdoor track and field championships on May 23-25 at Pueblo, Colo.

Christie is ranked no. 11 in the 100-meter dash with a time of 10.38. He will also run the 200-meter race as the no.23 seed. His qualifying time in the race is 21.17. Rimar will have his first race in the 100m on Thursday evening at 6:25 p.m. The 200m prelims will be on Friday evening at 5:45 p.m. The meet is being hosted by Colorado State University at Pueblo at the Neta and Eddie DeRose Thunderbowl. The top eight qualifiers in each race will qualify for the finals to be run on Saturday.

Christie recently won both events at the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Championships in Monmouth, Oregon earning him the GNAC Outstanding Performer of the meet award. During the regular season Christie set new school records in the 100, 200 and as the anchor leg of the 4 x 100.

Christie is also a candidate for USTFCCCA West Regional track athlete of the year. The regional award winners along with the NCAA Elite 89 winners will be announced at the championships on Wednesday May 22.

“We are very proud and happy for Rimar to be selected to represent NNU at the national championships,” commented head coach John Spatz. “It’s a select honor and one that Rimar has worked very hard to earn both in the classroom and on the track. His dedication in both these areas has been outstanding. He’s a very humble, quiet leader on our team. You couldn’t ask for a better person to represent our track program and the university as a whole.”
