Brock grew up swimming competitively, playing hockey and cross country running in Alberta, while doing triathlons in the summer.  After discovering the World Triathlon Series in 2012 at the age of 10, Brock began working hard on his 800m and 1500m freestyle events in swim club, and could often be found timing himself as he ran laps off the block, attempting to run as fast as the elites for a short sprint down the street.

In 2014 Brock and his family moved to Kelowna, B.C. to better pursue triathlon. After joining Balance Point Racing, Brock began training under coach Luke Way, a master physiological fitness tester and bike fitter. Over the past five years, Brock has been training a minimum of 15 hours, and up to 45 hours per week at training camps all while finishing high school.

The hard work has paid off. Brock won his first international race in 2019 at the CAMTRI Triathlon American Championships in Monterrey. He was the top junior male at the 2019 National Championships, and placed fourth overall. Brock also finished seventh in the Junior World Championships race in Lausanne, SUI.

In 2016, Brock won four gold medals at the B.C. Summer Games before going on to win the youth elite national title in Edmonton. In 2017, Brock competed in his first elite race in Ottawa at the National Championships where he made the A-final. He finished as the fourth best junior on the day, and 26th overall. Not long after, he competed in the Canada Summer Games in Winnipeg where he also finished fourth in the individual race, and earned two gold medals with Team B.C. in the boys and mixed team relay events.

In 2018, Brock ran his way into a silver medal at the Youth Olympic Games Qualifier in Salinas Ecuador, thus earning a spot for Canada at the Youth Olympic Games. A top-eight place finish in the Magog CAMTRI race also secured Brock a spot at the World Championships in Gold Coast, Australia where he came 18th in the Under-23 race.

Brock is confident in his training and truly believes he can be a threat each time he hits the start line. Brock trains consistently day in and day out  with the commitment and precision he believes it will take to one day stand on top of the Olympic podium.

Brock’s favourite snacks are salt and vinegar chips, black licorice, Aloe Vera, Red Bull, and Coca Cola of which he admittingly has too much of.

Brock’s sports heroes are Simon Whitfield, Rocky Marciano, and Haile gebreselassie – all of whom he looks up to for their passion, love of their sport and relentless pursuit.
