Pathway

Do you dream of competing alongside the best athletes in our nation and supporting Canada in the Olympics or Paralympics? Triathlon Canada’s high-performance Olympic and Paralympic Pathway follows a long-term athlete development model.

Olympic Pathway

Provincial sport organizations and local clubs are the main drivers for athletes across Canada striving to enter our high-performance Pathway. In order to ensure standards are the same across the nation, Triathlon Canada has created performance standards that must be met by all Canadian athletes before they can progress to the next level.

If you are a young athlete with the drive, determination and dream of being a part of our Triathlon Canada Nation’s National Team, and if you are between 14 and 19 years of age and your standards are similar to the ones listed in the age category below, we would like to introduce you to our Olympic pathway.

If you are close to meeting these Olympic standards in the Olympic pathway below please contact your provincial sport organization or Triathlon Canada’s High-Performance Director, Eugene Liang .
