Triathlon Saskatchewan Announces High Performance Realignment



MEDIA RELEASE

Effective today, October 18, 2017, Triathlon Saskatchewan (TriSask) is announcing a realignment of the provincial high performance program. The changes will benefit our membership by enabling us to efficiently develop a broader base of athletes and coaches. Alignment between our objectives and those of Triathlon Canada (TriCanada) will enhance exposure for clubs and their members around the province.

Going forward, our strategy will focus on developing excellence using a collaborative approach. This structure will empower each athlete with the flexibility to choose the coach / program they work with for daily training. The provincial coach will work within Saskatchewan to identify talent, develop coaches, and establish testing protocols in alignment with TriCanada. Furthermore, coaches will have access to a greater amount of resources for development, while athletes will have clear qualification standards for all provincial teams articulated in advance of each season’s events represented by a provincial team. What will remain in place is athlete funding, with a renewed focus on delivering high-value experiences through foundation and skill development clinics, and representation at provincial events.

Our realignment will enable us to execute even better on our strategic objectives, specifically within our excellence pillar. Utilizing a decentralized club structure, we will create a system where an increased pool of Saskatchewan multisport athletes, coaches, and teams will be trained to systematically achieve success at regional, national and international levels. 

TriSask has always had a big vision — To provide opportunities for members to be successful in multisport activities. We’ve come a long way, and the change will provide more opportunities for more athletes from around the province to achieve excellence.

Twelve Sask Triathlon Centre athletes competed in these championships as well as a mixed relay, youth and kids of steel races, June 17 and 18th in Ottawa.

 

This premium event was the first in North America to feature an elimination format for a CAMTRI Premium America’s Cup.  The elimination format provided Elite, U23 and Junior athletes to race on both Sat June 17 and Sun June 18 against each other.. The CAMTRI event enabled Canada’s best athletes to showcase their speed and aggressive racing on Saturday over the super sprint distance on a fast course.  On Sunday, these same athletes competed in either an A, B, or Exhibition final SPRINT distance race.

 

Two U23 athletes (Brennen Smith, Keisha Besler) and 6 Junior athletes (Sam Seshadri, Kaelen Kolb, Kyle Caie, Kaycee Schroeder, Samantha Graham, Tatiana Regnier) represented Sask and Canada in these events.

Both Smith and Besler advanced to the A final with Smith finishing 14th/30 (57:21) in the championship sprint event and Besler clocking 1:06.35 to finish 22nd/30 in the female category.

 

Two of our Junior males, Seshadri and Kolb advanced to the B finals finishing 25th (1:04.41)and 26th (1:04.48) respectively.  Caie just missed out on the B finals but was 3rd of 23 in the Exhibition final with a 57:42 sprint time.

 

Schroeder, Graham and Regnier raced in the supersprint qualifying heats but did not qualify for the A or B finals. Samantha Graham then raced in the women’s Exhibition final and placed 5th of 9 competitors with a time of 1:12.16 and Regnier was one of the team members on the Sask mixed relay along with Kaitao Han, Ella Perras, and Ben Seshadri placing 5th of the 10 teams.
