The start of the new triathlon season in Canada is just around the corner! As we begin this exciting new chapter, I want to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for your dedication, hard work and passion for our sport.
This past year was not without challenges, but I am inspired by the resiliency and determination that I have seen in our triathlon community. Your commitment to training, competing, and pushing yourselves to new limits is truly admirable.
As we look ahead to the coming months, I am filled with excitement for what is to come. We have an incredible lineup of events planned, and I am confident that we will see some truly outstanding performances from all of you.

Reminders / Updates

The 2023 qualification events are qualifying for the 2024 World Championship events.  Currently, World Triathlon has only published race information for the 2024 Multisport World Championships to be held in Townsville, Australia.  We will share information on the other two World Championship events as soon as we can. 

The expression of interest process will follow the same procedure as past years.  Links to the expression of interest forms for each event will be available on the Triathlon Canada website – see the calendar page linked above.

New Coaching Leadership Structure

Triathlon Canada has ramped up its coaching support structure in an effort to not only lead the nation’s best athletes towards their performance goals, but also to provide the leadership required to support the next generation of athletes and coaches.

Marc-Antoine Christin will continue to oversee coaching responsibilities for all athletes in the National Performance Centre as well as now taking the lead with athletes within Triathlon Canada’s Academy. Christin will concentrate more time in the daily training environment in Victoria, working with developing athletes in the system in addition to attending targeted international races at all levels.

Patrick Kelly will take on a hybrid leadership role within Triathlon Canada where he will mentor developing coaches across the country and provide direct, enhanced coaching support to Marc-Antoine Christin for athletes in the National Performance Centre and Academy.

Carolyn Murray will continue to hold the reigns of the Paratriathlon program as head coach, Triathlon Canada is currently in the midst of recruiting a Paratriathlon Pathway Coach to support the identification and transition of newly-identified paratriathletes onto the pathway to LA 2028.
