December 14, 2017 (Burnaby, BC) – Burnaby-based Fortius Sport & Health, an integrated athlete development centre, and Triathlon BC, the governing body of multisport in British Columbia, are excited to form a new partnership developing athlete performance in B.C.
“Hosting the International Triathlon Union World Championships in 2017 opened our eyes to what is possible for our provincial athletes,” said Allan Prazsky, Executive Director of Triathlon BC. “Partnering with Fortius will provide all of our athletes, young and old, enhanced access to world-class lab testing, including 3D gait analysis, V02max, lactate threshold and body composition testing, ensuring a well-rounded, and injury free athlete. We plan on levering our partnership with Fortius to maximize our athletes’ performances across all disciplines.”
“We are proud to partner with Triathlon BC to support triathletes across the province in reaching new heights in their training and performance,” said Craig Thompson, Fortius CEO. “Our vision is a sport culture where athletes from recreational to Olympic levels have the same opportunities to achieve their full potential.”
The newly forged partnership will see Triathlon BC members receiving year-round preferred pricing on state-of-the-art human performance testing, PowerWatts™ indoor training, accommodations at the Fortius Lodge and timely articles on a wide range of performance-oriented training tips.
Spring-boarding off an incredible year of performance, Triathlon BC will host the Multisport Coach Symposium out of Fortius in the spring of 2018, and will also work with the Fortius team in benchmark screening for provincial-level, high performance youth and junior athletes in the lead up of the 2018 season.
