LPC Defends its Crown in Division I While Fighting Koalas Takes its First Division II Title

– 25 Clubs and 177 members help Wasaga event participation grow 24% –

September 3, 2015 – Triathlon Ontario, the recognized Provincial Governing Body of Multisport in Ontario, announced the results of this past weekend’s Club Championship held at Multisport Canada’s Wasaga Beach Triathlon Weekend.

Numbers were strong in Wasaga Beach despite numerous club members choosing to rack up valuable points at the province’s first full IRONMAN event, a significant part of Triathlon Ontario’s Long Course Series and a number of juniors competing in the Junior Cup Series finale at Dunrobin.  In total, 177 athletes scored points for their 25 clubs in attendance over the weekend.  After three to four years of terrible weather, an event move date earlier in the calender helped to ensure ideal racing conditions this year.  The new date, along with hosting the Club Championships helped the Wasaga event experience a 24% increase in participation from the previous year, according to Sportstats.
