—Triathlon Canada’s fab five combine veterans and youth poised to shock the world in London—

A group of five Canadian athletes are determined to deliver a knockout punch when they step into the Olympic triathlon ring for the 2012 Games in London, July 27-August 12.

Kyle Jones, of Oakville, Ont., will make his Olympic debut in 2012. An alternate at the 2008 Games, Jones has made huge strides to develop into an elite racer over the last two years. The 27-year-old is coming off career-best top-15 performances on the World Triathlon Series, has won three Continental Cup races in 2011, and finished fourth at the Pan Am Games and Edmonton World Cup last year.

“My father was a canoe coach at the 1984 and 1988 Olympics. I was born in 1984 so was pretty young, but I was surrounded in that Olympic environment at an early age. It definitely became a lifelong goal of mine so it is a thrill to finally achieve it. I’m really looking forward to doing some hard training over the next month to prepare for this race.”
