Our first year has been a busy one with individual athletes, corporate events, commentating and our teams own personal racing. Here is a short recap of some of the things we’ve achieved in 2017.
Scottish Sea Farms Triathlon Festival
We organised our first corporate triathlon event for Scottish Sea Farms in May. With months of training building up to it the participants all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Throughout the process some of them lost significant amounts of weight, gave up smoking, and everyone noticed increased camaraderie within the office itself. Then on day the day, with Olympian Michael Jamieson also in attendance, they were able to complete the event and raise over £30,000 for charity.
We are currently in the process of organising their 2nd annual Triathlon Festival for 2018 which will be even bigger and better than before.
We now have athletes being coached all across the world, from Grangemouth in Scotland to an oil rig off the coast of Malaysia.
All of the athletes coached by You Can Sport have achieved at least one PB this season, with many of them setting a new PB nearly every event they competed at. We have had a real cross section of abilities with athletes focussing on running only events, to some doing IRONMAN, ultramarathons and even the double-endurance triathlon at Deca UK.
We look forward to seeing how they all get in 2018 and can’t wait to help them work towards their goals. If you’d like to join them in being coached by one of our team then contact us to get started.
Graham has been busy with commentating at various events throughout the year with the diary already filling up for 2018. Some of the events we attended this year were IRONMAN 70.3 Edinburgh, Etape Caledonia, Strathclyde Park Triathlon, Perth Mo Run and the Aberfeldy Triathlon. If you have an event that you’d like an experience event commentator to attend then get in touch with Graham at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Craig was awarded the Triathlon Scotland Performance Development Coach of the Year award at their annual awards ceremony in November. Then, this month, Gregg completed his IRONMAN coaching certification to add to his British Triathlon L1 and will start getting more involved in 2018.
We have lots of exciting plans for next year in the pipeline and will be looking to expand our athlete base even more. So if you have set yourself with some goals for next year already and would benefit from some coaching guidance and personalised training plans then email email@example.com now to get started.
We know You Can achieve your goals!
