From the Triathlon Canada website:

(Toronto, ON) Triathlon Canada is pleased to announce that former Olympic cyclist Kurt Innes has been named as High Performance Director. A 1992 Olympian and six-time national track cycling champion, Innes made a successful transition from athlete to coach, twice winning the Coaches Association of Canada Coaching Excellence Award (1998 & 1999) and has been an Olympic Team cycling coach on two occasions (Canada 2000, New Zealand 2004). Innes brings an expertise in athlete preparation, performance planning, coaching development and long-term athlete development to Triathlon Canada’s high performance program. Kurt joins Triathlon Canada in his new role effective January 19th, 2009 after completing his duties as Lead Performance Planner at the Canadian Sport Centre-Pacific in Kelowna, BC. He will be relocating to Victoria, BC and will be based out of the National Triathlon Centre - Victoria.


I had the opportunity to work with Kurt during my internship at the NTC in Victoria, and I'm looking forward to working with him again as our HP Director. Welcome aboard Kurt!
