My name is Nick Patenaude and I currently live in Victoria, BC, Canada! I’ve been competing in triathlons for just over a year now, as well as duathlons for 3 years. In total, I’ve been running events for about 4 years!
I just qualified (twice) this summer for the 2014 ITU World Duathlon Championships in Pontevedra, Spain, and I’m SUPER pumped to be representing Canada on a world stage! I plan on continuing with my competition in the duathlon scene, and amping up my tri competitions as well, because I want to be at the 2015 World Triathlon Championships!
I’ve got lots of swimming to do to prepare for my races! I’m keen to share training tips and advice with other keen triathletes who are looking to become world class athletes, and I’m pretty sure YoungTri is one of the best places to network with like-minded triathletes! The YoungTri Times is always full of health conscious recipes and fun training ideas, and I look forward to adding my own brand of vegan nutrition, holistic training, and educational background to the growing list of Ambassadors!
