Martin grew up in Charlottetown, P.E.I. He has always enjoyed endurance sports since he was young, but he was introduced into the sport of triathlon later than most, at the age of 16 with the prospect of the 2013 Canada Summer Games. After qualifying for PEI’s Canada Games team in 2013, Martin quickly became passionate and determined to perfect the balance of the three disciplines.

With the ultimate goal of competing at the Olympic Summer Games, Martin decided to move across the country to Victoria in 2016 to join the newly formed National Performance Centre. In Victoria, Martin balances his sporting goals alongside his academics. He is in his fourth year of an economics major at the University of Victoria. He has seen steady improvements in performance throughout the past four seasons and continues to rise in the international rankings. Last year, Martin celebrated his first CAMTRI victory in Richmond, Virginia.

A three-time PEI Junior Triathlete-of-the-Year, Martin’s first international podium came at the Magog CAMTRI event in 2018 where he finished second. The 2018 season also saw Martin selected for his first World Championships Team where he finished 23rd and was Canada’s top Under-23 male.

In 2020 Martin is in his second year as a National Development Team member. Building off of last year’s momentum, Martin is aiming to become a more consistent podium performer while continuing his steady progression and development in the sport.
