Winnipeg, MB – Winnipeg triathlete Kyla Roy is making the most of the unseasonably warm fall weather. After closing out an exciting season of competition, the 18-year-old says she’s been “going for casual runs and swims,” and has been “mixing it up and riding [her] cyclecross bike on the trails before it snows.”
In September, Roy represented Canada in the Junior Women’s division at the 2016 ITU World Triathlon in Cozumel. Being selected was in itself an exceptional accomplishment for Roy, who – only six months earlier – had suffered an injury that put her entire competitive season in question.
To help with recovery and prepare for the extremes she’d face in Mexico, Roy worked with sport science experts from the Canadian Sport Centre Manitoba (CSCM).
