TLS Season Wrap 2019

October 22

A recap of a successful season for the TLS athletes.

  • 33 races
  • 23 podiums
  • 1x Swiss Youth National Duathlon Champion
  • 1x Swiss Youth Triathlon Vice Champion
  • 1x 2nd in the Youth League Series
  • 1x 4th in the Under 18 National League Series

 

Two training camps were run during the season for the TLS athletes, the first in Saigneligier for the winter langlauf camp and our Summer training camp in Sankt Moritz where the athletes were able to train with and watch Olympic, World and European champions including Nicola Spirig and Julie Derron. Both camps were about exposing the athletes to performance focused environments and the elite athlete lifestyle.

 

Shortly the TLS will run the first of the biannual ‘TLS Triouts’ where the region's young athletes can come and participate in a testing day for the TLS. Any athletes who perform to the TLS's entry requirments can then discuss joining future trainings with the TLS.

 

For those who are not yet at this level they will be encouraged to work with their local Triathlon Club to improve their performance and join the TLS in the future. This allows the TLS to actively support the regions triathlon clubs by directing athletes to them whilst showing them the TLS aims to not only support the performance improvement of athletes, but also the growth of triathlon in the region.
