Triathlon Canada – Triathlon Canada looks to leverage national camp to identify, develop and enhance performance environment for new recruits
VICTORIA—Fresh off making history by winning the silver medal at triathlon’s Paralympic debut in Rio, Stefan Daniel will be heading to Triathlon Canada’s headquarters in Victoria this week to help with the development of the next generation of para-triathletes.
With the goal of identifying, developing and building a quality daily performance environment for new athletes, Triathlon Canada will hold its first-ever Para-triathlon Development Camp, December 8-12. The camp will attract a pool of developing para-triathletes from across Canada who will be fine-tuning their swim, bike and run skills under the guidance of national team coaches.
The 19-year-old Daniel will join the camp on December 10 where he will address the group of new athletes during their run training on the PISE Track in Victoria.
The camp,, which provides an opportunity for athletes to train, learn, and work together in an effort to have a positive impact on skill development, will include testing in all disciplines of the
sport over the four-day period.
The Para-Triathlon Development Camp is possible thanks to the support from the 2014 Edmonton Legacy Foundation, Canadian Paralympic Committee, Canadian Sport Institute – Pacific,
PISE, Triathlon N.B., and Ontario Triathlon.
