PATCO 2009

A quick update after a long day - I'll write a complete report in the coming days.

Great coaching staff, and great preparation & performances from the athletes.

Full results here.

Podium Performances

Junior Women
1. Kyla Coates, BC
3. Marianne Hogan, QC

Junior Men
2. Connor Hammond, ON

U23 Men
1. Andrew McCartney, BC
2. Andrew Yorke, ON

....and at least three fourth place finishes: Rachel Edwards in the junior women, Ian Donald in the junior men, and Jeff Phillips in U23 men.

Connor and Ian qualify for Ontario's Canada Games Triathlon Team, and gain consideration for ITU Worlds.

A tough day for a few athletes, including four tough-as-nails guys in the junior race who crashed - lots of road rash and disappointment, but they handled themselves very well. Great job Matt Vierula, Mark Okany, Taylor Lick and Joel Howlett.

More later. Congrats to the crew on representing Canada so well.
