Calgary’s Calvin Zaryski added another (we think it’s up to nine) world age group title to his amazing Xterra record, taking the men’s 50 to 54 age group in Maui on the weekend. He wasn’t the only Canadian to finish on the podium at the Xterra World Championship – others included:

  • Meaford, Ontario’s Kevin Knight took the silver medalĀ  in the men’s 60 to 64 age group
  • Colorado Springs resident Sharon McDowell-Larsen also finished second in the women’s 55 to 59 age group
  • Clarksburg, Ontario’s Monica Wolf took third in the women’s 50 to 54 age group
  • Whistler’s John Blok also took bronze in the men’s 65 to 69 age group.
