A big weekend on the ITU World Cup circuit for Canada with Carolyn Murray (AB) leading the way with her first World Cup Win! You can read Carolyn's race report here. Kathy Tremblay (QC) finished 4th (her second best World Cup finish ever), and Kyle Jones (ON) finished 4th in the mens' race (best World Cup finish ever), only 10 seconds behind first place finisher and reigning World Champion Daniel Unger. Congrats also to Lauren Groves (13th) and Brent McMahon (18th). Canada currently has 2 women in the top 10 of the World Cup Rankings (Tremblay: 8th, Murray: 10th) and 3 men ranked in the top 10 (Tichelaar: 5th, Jones: 9th, Whitfield: 10th). I don't think Canada has ever had so many athletes ranked in the top 10 before. Congrats to the athletes and their coaches.
Back in Ontario, we wrapped up our last training day of the year on Sunday; I'm looking forward to seeing everyone race this summer. Karsten Madsen has been doing a little racing recently, and Alexander Hinton showed some good early season run speed with PBs in the 1500m and the 3000m.
