IVF Sprint Outrigger World Championships (Sacramento CA): outrigger canoeing
Kathryn Ginther of Penticton BC (training program, technique and performance analyses) came home with three Bronze medals from the V6 1000 m, V6 500 and V12 500 m events.
Canadian Triathlon Championships (Kelowna BC)
Martina Wan (full program, performance analyses and technical coaching support) announced herself in her first elite race as an up and coming force to be reckoned with in women’s triathlon.
On the bike, Martina worked super hard and was the strongest rider in the chase pack as reflected in her 4th fastest bike split! She performed a clinic in T2 skills posting the second fastest bike to run transition and led the chase pack onto the run in 6th places. Martina pushed harder than she ever had in a race to finish 11th overall and 8th Canadian!
Well done Martina!
AGE GROUP RACE
2008 World Champion and now 2008 Canadian F4044 Champion; Stephanie Kieffer (full program, performance analyses and technical coaching support) was unstoppable!
Stephanie was also 3rd overall in the women, but only after the the eventual winner and second place finisher had chased her down on the run.
With over 25 participants in the race, LETC (program and technical coaching) was solid across the board with four podium appearance and nine automatic qualifications (q) for the 2009 ITU Olympic Distance Worlds in Australia!
