On Tuesday August 26th, Mayor Don Iveson was working up a sweat as he welcomed the TransCanada Corp. World Triathlon Grand Final to Edmonton. The weeklong event will be a far cry from the 2001 ITU World Triathlon Championship, as it was known then.
Triathlon was just starting to emerge in the international sporting conscience, and Edmonton was the first host following its debut at the 2000 Olympics. Edmonton 2014 expects upward of 5,000 athletes, with the event beamed to a worldwide TV audience of 21 million in 160 countries.
As the Mayor demonstrated after his workout, the Endless Pools and Covers in Play team create the perfect training and therapy environment for year round exercise at smaller locations, residences, clubs or clinics.
