Tell your friends. That's right, we're going to resurrect the training days. A few of the local Guelph parents corralled coach Lorri Zagar and yours truly just before xmas to get some training days organized in Guelph for 2011. Details are being worked out, but we wanted to post the tentative dates to put the word out. All training days will be in Guelph, most likely at the UofGuelph, but we're also looking at the Marden Field House. Lorri's Fun2Tri Club will the official host club.

If coaches are interested in coaching, send me an e-mail.

Here are the tentative dates, and themes/additional features for each day:

Sun Jan 30th: Likely a Bike & Run Theme

Sun Mar 6th: Gear Swap

Sun Apr 17th: Transitions and Bike Skills

Sun May 15th: Pre-Race Prep

Mark your calendars. More details soon.

December 9, 2010 

TORONTOTriathlon Canada and its team of athletes offered official support to the International Triathlon Union’s bid for inclusion of Para-Triathlon into the Paralympic Summer Games lineup in Rio De Janeiro 2016, the governing body for the sport in Canada announced on Thursday.
Triathlon Canada has joined a star-studded lineup of athletes and organizations backing the bid to encourage the International Paralympic Committee to make a favourable decision for inclusion of Para-Triathlon into the 2016 Games.

Now we’ve had the reader’s choice its back to our camera artist Delly Carr for his choice and why:
At the time I didn’t think much of this image. But Paula Findlay surprised everyone that day and beat all the fancied favourites. So this picture now takes on a different meaning.
Her eyes tell you so much. You can see power, nobility, and ambition in her stare. And then look at all the blues in the image ..... her eyes, her swim goggles, her uniform, and the background. The colour blue is linked to consciousness, intellect, power and seriousness. Add a splash of the energy of the colour red, the colour of fire and blood, and she had the colour balance working perfectly that day to take on the world. And she did. - Delly Carr
