He will be a valuable addition to our team.”

Wilson is ready to role out his agenda of achievement insisting, “Triathlon Canada is at a very exciting stage of development; we have a new high-performance and sport-development staff, some electrifying young talent emerging, strong grassroots growth, and a steady range of quality events.” He also noted that  Canada will step into the spotlight this summer with the World Triathlon Series’ Grand Final event taking place in Edmonton.
