 Shawnacy Barber Family: Parents, Siblings, Wife & Children



Shawnacy Barber

Born on May 27, 1994, and passing away on January 17, 2024, Shawnacy Campbell Barber was a Canadian track and field athlete who was especially proficient in the pole vault. At the 2015 World Championships in Athletics in Beijing, Canadian track and field athlete won the world championship in the pole vault.

The 2014 Commonwealth Games saw him win a bronze medal as well. In 2016, Barber's best indoor leap was 6.00 meters, while his best outdoor jump was 5.93 meters. At 5.91 meters, he holds the NCAA Collegiate Indoor mark and is tied with Lázaro Borges for the Pan American mark.

Barber made a mistake with his 5.40 vault in the opening rounds but later clarified that he had applied sunscreen and some residue was still on his hands. He enlisted in the August 2015 Nike roster and participated at the 2015 World Championships in Athletics in Beijing, where he won the world title with a 5.90-meter leap. This was Canada's first global championship in sports since 2003.

During the Pole Vault Summit in January 2016, Barber became the first under-23 athlete to clear six meters, breaking his national record. He carried this momentum into the World Indoor Athletes in 2016, where he fell short of expectations in the indoor race. Barber finished seventh in the Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympics of 2016 competition, clearing 5.50 meters before missing all three of his efforts at 5.65 meters.

Barber tested positive for cocaine before the Games but was allowed to compete since the use was deemed to have been unintentional. The New York Times reports that Barber successfully attributed a low-level cocaine offense in 2016 to a personal encounter with a woman he met on Craigslist the evening before Olympic trials, saving him from a multiyear suspension.
