WINNIPEG—Canada’s next generation of triathlon heroes will be hitting the startline for fast and furious swimming, cycling, and running this weekend at Bird’s Hill Park in Winnipeg as part of the inaugural race in the Teck National Junior Triathlon Series.
The Triple Threat Triathlon club is hosting their annual Triple Threat Triathlon. In addition to race categories for all levels of athletes, a record number of competitive junior athletes will take to the waters and paths of Birds Hill, vying for Canada Games positions and the title of Western Canadian Junior Triathlon Champion.
Ontario will be represented by 14 athletes:
Ian Donald (PTC)
Travis Goron (Loaring Personal Coaching)
Alexander Hinton (PTC)
David Mackie (Fighting Koalas)*
Karsten Madsen (C3)

Matt Vierula (Bytown Storm)
Tristan Woodfine (Bytown Storm)*
Joanna Brown (Bytown Storm)

* First junior draft legal race
There should be some great racing in Birds Hill Park on Sunday. Men go at 8:00am, Women at 8:05am. We expect it to be a wetsuit swim, with a rolling bike course, and flat & fast run. Best of luck to David Mackie and Tristan Woodfine as they toe the line in their first junior draft-legal event.
