From August 26 to September 1, 2014, the world came to Edmonton, Alberta, for the TransCanada Corp. World Triathlon Grand Final.

The event officially closed the 25th annual World Triathlon Series, which included eight triathlon races worldwide. In the months leading up to the event, the International Triathlon Union (ITU), local organizing committee, community partners, government and corporate sponsors worked together to ensure the event was an epic experience for athletes, coaches, community members and participants.

During the event, employees of corporate sponsors, including TransCanada as title sponsor, had a chance to race on an elite level course with their colleagues. TransCanada had the largest team of all of the sponsors with 32 participating employees.

“We have a great Active Living Program at TransCanada that encourages all of us to be healthy and stay active in whatever sport we enjoy,” says Rick Coutts, corporate racer and vice-president of construction quality and project management at TransCanada. “I was very happy to see us step up to support the ITU championships, and I was just really excited to be there and to be able to compete.”

The TransCanada triathlon team did a fantastic job, as did all the racers and participants in the event. The International Triathlon Union has just released its 2015 schedule where, once again, the world’s elite triathletes will compete for the coveted title of world triathlon champion. TransCanada has supported sport, culture and economic growth across North America for more than 60 years.
