Olympic Solidarity awards 16 triathletes “London 2012” Scholarships from World Programme

30/03/11 at 5:07 am
A total 16 triathletes have been awarded “London 2012” Olympic Scholarships by the IOC’s Olympic Solidarity’s World Programme Fund.
This is the largest number of awards in ITU’s history as an Olympic sport.  The recipients include eight men and eight women from National Olympic Committees (NOCs) that meet the Olympic Solidarity aims.
Olympic Solidarity aims to offer assistance to all NOCs, but in particular those with the greatest needs to allow them to develop their own structures to favour the expansion of sport in their countries.  Olympic Scholarships for Athletes “London 2012” is a key mission of the Olympic Solidarity programme in order to allow talented athletes to prepare for the London Summer Olympic Games.

Full press release.

Congrats to Jason Wilson (BAR), who has trained with our squad since April, for his selection to this program. It will be a fun and challenging journey; he's been doing a great job of getting the work done and bringing positive energy and a fantastic work ethic to every session.

Good thing he doesn't mind the cold.

2001: When men wore two piece suits with speedos, and you could take a Go Train to a World Cup. Lake Ontario was cold in June, and Scott Curry got a standing ovation from the crowd for his gutsy solo ride to avoid the lap out (complete with a Canadian flag waving from his saddle). Simon made it look easy as he rolled off the front and shattered the run pack, and an unknown named Jill Savege made her ITU debut with a 9th place finish (!).

A little inspiration while we wait for spring to get here:

Men's Results.

Women's Results.

FEET & FUEL 2011

Busy days = no blogging. One of the things I missed while in Clermont was Speed River's "Feet & Fuel" conference. Here are two clips from Head Coach DST; great stuff, definitely worth a few plays for the coaches out there. Thanks to for posting.
