Good luck Morgan Williams, Candy Wong, Peter Doucet, and Gilbert Crevier at the Canadian Championships this weekend in Laval, Quebec. These four skaters will be flying the TISC colours high and proud in “La Belle Province”!
Despite the Canadian Championships being cancelled in 2015 because of low entries, the hard work and dedication of a few volunteers ensured the return of the event, which was last hosted by TISC and held in Toronto in 2014. Quebec last hosted the competition in 2012 with track racing in Ste-Foy (Quebec City) and road racing in Laval (Montreal).
This will be Gilbert Crevier’s first ever Canadian Championship. Crevier, who’s been skating with TISC for a couple of years now, feels ready to take on the Grand Masters. Crevier has regularly attended TISC practices this year and is looking forward to using his speed and racing tactics to gain his best results in his first ever race!
Peter Doucet has competed in every Canadian Championship since 1994. Keeping in mind last year’s event was cancelled, this will be Doucet’s 22nd Canadian Championship! This multiple Canadian Champion has represented Canada at the World Championships, Pan Am Games, Pan Am Championships, and Junior North American Champs. This year, he will be racing AND managing the competition.
Candy Wong has been working and training hard under her coach Sutton Atkins’ guidance. She’ll be competing in the Senior Word Class division, looking for personal best performances. Wong already competed in Montreal this year, taking the top podium position in the Laval Marathon’s 21km race. In the meantime, she’s also training for the Montreal 24 Hours and the New York 100k!
Morgan Williams is proving to be one of the best skaters this year in Toronto. He’s been TISC’s top finisher this year, winning races at the Summer Dash and placing well at the Laval Marathon. He placed 4th overall in the 21km in Laval. Morgan will look to step on the podium in the Senior World Class division. Morgan, a very experienced racer, loves to be competitive and hopes to continue with strong performances this September at the Northshore Inline Marathon and the New York 100k.
