Triathlon Canada Elite Triathlete of the Year and TMC Paratriathlete of the Year: Stefan Daniel
At just 21, Stefan Daniel has already made an incredible name for himself on the world Paratriathlon stage. Now a three-time world champion, Daniel retained his number one position in the world Paratriathlon ranks thanks to yet another impressive world title in Australia at the Grand Final.
In Nov. 2018, Daniel placed 10th overall in the USports Cross Country Championships to help the Univerisity of Calgary Dinos win the national men’s title.
Daniel, who was born with bilateral club hands and who’s right arm is shorter than his left, proved once again that he can compete with the best on the able-bodied front, finishing 17th in the U23 category of the world duathlon championships held in Fyn, Denmark last summer. Pair that up with his Paratriathlon World Series win in Edmonton, and you have the makings of yet another stellar season as Daniel continues to prep for another Paralympic run for 2020.
