Somersault Award Winner, Total Immersion Weekend, Utah Deadline

Congratulations to Lucie Tremblay on earning the Somersault award for another year! A true champion!! Here is Lucie's report on last season...
 

Well, the end of the season was officially marked last Friday with the annual Somersault Awards ceremony. I finished 3rd overall in the Women Triathlon Series. The top 3 was from the same AG which is interesting. Thanks to my persistence with Terry McKinty who has been very receptive to my comments, we found a solution to make the point system more fair. The champion challenge rules will be changing in 2015 and only one Super Sprint in the series will be eligible for points. For those stats savvy or competitive soles like me :-) this will prevent athletes competing in the Super Sprint only to win it all year after year.
 
It has been a great season for me with consistent performances. Several highs and very few lows. Next year is expected to be packed with events to get ready for the ITU World Championships in Chicago in September and hopefully, the Military World Games taking place in Korea next October. Looking forward to getting back into the routine with my fellow Triumph friends and to jump into a new AG 45-49.

TOTAL IMMERSION CLINIC with TERRY LAUGHLIN IN MONTREAL!

So happy to have the opportunity to spend the weekend with the creator of Total Immersion, Terry Laughlin and TI Master coach, Celeste St Pierre. Terry is truly the rockstar of swimming efficiency. Debbie, Kevin and I all joined the clinic and it was amazing to watch everyone improve so much over the weekend. 

He has updated the drills and I can't wait to share them with the team and during private lessons. I look forward to continued training with TI over the coming months to become part of their coaching team!
