EAS and RTC triathlete Stephanie Kieffer won the Sport BC Master’s Athlete of the Year award for 2011.

Steph had a great season winning BC, Canadian and World Championships titles in 2011. These were the icing on a multi year campaign where she collected two more age group Triathlon World Championship Gold medals, an age group Triathlon World Championship Bronze and an overall Canadian National Age Group Championship win.

Congrats Stephanie.

Allergy season and the athlete

Saturday June 18, 11
As spring moves into summer, allergy season begins for many athletes.
The Weather Network has pollen forecasts that can help you identify potential allergens in your region that are affecting you. Better yet, obtain a referral to a MD specializing in allergies.
If you are suffering from allergies (or taking other medication) and subject to Doping Control, you have to be very vigilant as to what you ingest. Many allergy medications contain ingredients on the WADA banned list. Check with the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport “check your medication” resource or go directly to the Global DRO for Canada (or your country as ingredients may vary based on where the product was purchased).

Triathlon Canada: Regional Training Centre | Vancouver

Sunday June 5, 11

The planning for the Triathlon Canada regional training centre has begun!  Right now I am collecting data from the various stakeholders such as Triathlon Canada, Triathlon BC and the Canadian Sport Centre Pacific.  I have also held some informal meetings with community stockholder, junior and youth coaches and Vancouver based high performance triathletes.

There are a number of topics that are common to each group and intertwined themes viewed from different perspectives.

Managing these into a viable project will be the main challenge!

If our Regional Training Centre is of interest to you, please feel free to drop me a line and share your thoughts.

To do this I will be building community ties with the triathlon community in metroVancouver and the extended communities needed to support these athletes.

If you are interested in buying into this project as a supporter in some capacity, please contact me.  Who knows, I may be contacting you very soon!
