Tyler Mislawchuck became the first Canadian male to reach the podium on the World Triathlon Series tour. He captured bronze in Montreal, Quebec on Saturday afternoon.
The 25-year-old made history in front of a home crowd, claiming his medal in a time of 53:53 on the ITU World Series’ sixth stop. Joining him on the podium was Belgium’s Jelle Geens with a golden time of 53:49 and Mario Mola of Spain who earned himself the silver in 53:50.
This is Mislawchuk’s first World Triathlon Series podium.
This season, the Winnipeg native has had quite the showing. Mislawchuk won his first career World Cup in Mooloolaba, Australia in March and then reigned victorious just a few months later, claiming his second medal of the season, in Mexico.
Joanna Brown also competed in today’s events in Montreal, finishing in 12th place respectively.
The next triathlon event in the ITU World Series tour is in Hamburg, Germany from July 6-7.
