sweetlandOn September 5 through 6, nine Canadian elites will take to the start line at the 2015 ITU World Triathlon Edmonton at Hawrelak Park. As the last stop before the Grand Final, the race is stacked with big talent including Javier Gomez, Mario Mola and Richard Murray on the men’s side and Non Stanford, Emma Moffatt, Emma Jackson and Flora Duffy in the women’s race.

Led by last year’s World Triathlon Series and Commonwealth Games medallist, Kirsten Sweetland of Victoria, and hometown favourite Paula Findlay, Triathlon Canada will start four women including Dominika Jamnicky (Guelph, Ont.) and Alex Coates (Calgary).

Each of the three Canadian men – Kyle Jones (Oakville, Ont.), Tyler Mislawchuk (Oak Bluff, Man.) and Andrew Yorke (Caledon, Ont.) – who competed at the recent Pan American Games in Toronto will also hit the start line. In addition, Canada will suit up two of its elite para-triathletes – Stefan Daniel (Calgary) and Christine Robbins (Ottawa).

The Edmonton race also features standard and sprint distance age group races over the weekend.
