Back from Camp

This report on the Loyalist KOS race is a bit late as I was at the OAT triathlon camp in Collingwood all week. Camp was amazing - anyone wanting a fun filled, tri-packed week should consider it next year.

On to Loyalist... Eight fun2triers travelled to Amherstview for the race. All of the athletes did a great job on a hot day in the sun. Results included: Sasha (3rd, 14-15), Myles (1st, 12-13), Kyle (3rd, 12-13), Ben (8th, 12-13), Lauren (8th, 12-13), Ellen (8th, 10-11), Connor (1st, 8-9), Andrew (11th, 8-9)

As usual at Loyalist, the post race action (food and prizes) was almost as good as the racing. A huge round of applause and thank-you to race director Clive Morgan on putting on this event. See you next year.

Pink on the Podium

Congratulation to Kyle on winning the 12-13 age group at the Huronia KOS race on Sunday. This is Kyles' first (but definitely not his last) win. All your hard work is paying off!!

Congrats to Nolan too on his 4th place finish. If a little chain problem hadn't occurred there may have been more pink on the podium. Keep working Nolan, it is going to happen.

Bits and Bites

Just a quick note to say great job at practice on Thursday. I am so impressed with everyone's willingness to work really hard - and still have smiles on your faces. Great job!

Kyles and Nolan are off to the Huronia KOS race. Have a great race guys!!

Then Sasha, Kyle, Ben and Myles and Aidan (after swim Provincials) are off to tri camp. Have fun, learn lots and bring back some fun stories.

P.S. Provincial swimming is going well for Myles and Aidan. Myles posted a best time in the 400IM yesterday and Aidan posted a best time in the 200 free. Congratulations!

Happy Canada Day!!

Just a quick note to say Happy Canada Day. We often read in the press how short changed our Canadian athletes are in terms of funding, facilities and support. And that is probably true. But today, take a minute or two and think about how lucky we are to be Canadian and all the great things that we have because we are Canadian. Enjoy your day and keep dreaming about hoisting the Maple Leaf at some point in your life.
