When Triathlon Meets Art

Canadian University Virtual Triathlon Series

In February, our team competed in the first set of races for the Canadian University Virtual Triathlon Series. These races were organized by Queen’s University Triathlon for student athletes across Canada. Athletes raced by doing their own individual time trials and submitted those results virtually. Based on the individual times, schools were then awarded points. Currently, our team sits in third place! Stay tuned to see how our athletes do in the subsequent races!

Strava Art Contest

Our team recently held a Strava art contest. We took the top 4 submissions and put them on our social media so that our followers can vote for their favourite. Although all the submissions were amazing, the winner of our Strava Art contest was Shaun and her peacock submission!

Resuming Team Swim Practices

For the past couple of weeks, we’ve been back in the pool with our swim coach Jaren! Our 21 and under athletes are following COVID protocols and are able to swim as a group again. In addition, we’ve been doing private one-on-one coaching for our over-21 athletes who are not swimming as a group. We’re really excited to head into the final part of the semester with a splash!

Our club execs took the time this Valentine’s Day to make cards and send them to our athletes with love!
