Watching Simon Whitfield win silver at the Beijing Olympic Games kicked off Tyler Mislawchuk’s dream of competing for Canada. A scant eight years later he competed in the Rio Olympics on the sport’s biggest stage, finishing in 15th place on his first appearance.
That was only the beginning. All the world took notice as he won the 2019 Tokyo test event in a stacked field that included Olympic hopefuls from many nations. His Olympic campaign in the past four years has also seen him become Canadian national champion, be selected for the Commonwealth Games individual and mixed relay triathlon events, and become the first Canadian to finish on the podium in a World Triathlon Series race.
As Tyler takes aim at Tokyo, count on him to target gold.
