Like any Canadian child, Tyler grew up playing hockey. He discovered triathlon after following a suggestion from a family friend to use it as a form of cross-training for hockey. Quickly, Tyler was discovered by Manitoba provincial coach, Dave Lipchen, who encouraged him to train full time.

Enticed to compete at the Manitoba Summer Games, Tyler followed the offer to train with the Manitoba Youth Team over the summer, and he was hooked ever since – replacing his skates for a bike. He joined the Manitoba National Triathlon Centre with coach Gary Pallett in the fall of 2009. Tyler went on to represent Canada at the 2015 Pan American Games. He then accomplished his dream of competing for Canada at the 2016 Olympic Summer Games in Rio.

Battling to find his top stride following Rio, Tyler relocated to Triathlon Canada’s National Performance Centre in 2018 and enjoyed a bounce back season, regularly finding his way into the top-10 on the elite triathlon series – a place he occupied three years ago. His 2018 campaign will be remembered for a career-best fourth-place finish at the Yokohama stop of the World Triathlon Series, his first World Cup podium where he won the silver in Antwerp, Belgium, and a career best finish 10th at the Grand Final.

Building on his bounce-back campaign, Tyler broke through with a career year in 2019 where he regularly ran his way into the Canadian triathlon history books. Beginning the season with the first two World Cup victories of his career, Tyler became the first Canadian male to podium on the World Triathlon Series when he sprinted to the bronze in Montreal. He topped that performance by winning the Olympic Test Event in Tokyo, Japan.

Tyler’s Dad has attended several multi-sport Games including the Olympics, as a member of the broadcast team.  When not swimming, biking or running, Tyler is half way through his degree at the University of Manitoba’s Asper School of Business. He also enjoys: hockey, soccer, football, lacrosse, cross country and track.
