3. BARRIE SHEPLEY'S TOP 10 CANADIAN WOMEN OF 2014

BARRIE SHEPLEY'S TOP 10 CANADIAN FEMALE TRIATHLETE'S OF 2014 LIST
#1 Heather Wurtele
#2 Kirsten Sweetland
#3 Angela Duncan Naeth
#4 Paula Findlay
#5 Rachel McBride
#6 Magali Tisseyre
#7 Melanie McQuaid
#8 Sarah Anne Brault
#9 Amelie Kretz
#10 Joanna Brown

* I did not rank Ellen Pennock due to significant missed time due to injuries. Expect to see her back rivalling for top honours in 2015.

YOUNG GUNS TO LOOK OUT FOR IN 2015
* Kristen Marchant
* Dominika Jaminicky
* EMILY LEGAULT
* Elizbeth Boutin
* Emily Wagner
* Kirsten Vergara

2014 was a year of comebacks (Kirsten Sweetland, Paula Findlay & Magali Tisseyre), great racing early (Ellen Pennock & Sarah Anne Brault) and veterans who just kept rolling along (Heather Wurtele & Melanie McQuaid). Half the top 10 were Olympic distance racers and the other half dominated the 70.3 & Ironman racing format.

HEATHER WURTELE BARRIE'S FEMALE TRIATHLETE OF THE YEAR

While it was close between Heather & Kirsten Sweetland, the nod goes to Wurtele for her consistency all year long. With three 70.3 victories (Monterrey, Oceanside & Eagleman) and an Ironman win (Coeur D'Alene) Heather was on fire in 2014. Perhaps no race was she hotter than her bronze medal performance at the 70.3 World Championships at home in Mt Tremblant Quebec Canada. Her season started with a great bronze medal performance in St George North American Championships. The only setback in her incredible season was a disappointing but gutsy performance in Kona in October.

Coming a close second for triathlete of the year is Kirsten Sweetland. The former World Jr Champion and under 23 World Medalist has had numerous missed seasons due to injury. Sweetland had five top five performances in 2014, including a bronze at the Hamburg WTS Triathlon. But Sweetland would have to argue her performance of the summer was in Scotland at the Commonwealth Games where she had a brilliant silver medal finish. After a gutsy 4th place finish in Stockholm (where she got sick) Sweetland travelled back to Edmonton for the World Championships but never recovered and pulled out of the Grand Final. Canadian coaches are excited about the renewed energy in the still very young 25 year old as she heads towards the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto in July.

Angela Duncan Naeth continues to ride a bike like a pro cyclists and consistently had some of the fastest bike splits ever recorded in women's triathlons. Naeth had wins in Panama 70.3, Hawaii 70.3 and an Ironman win in Chattanooga in 2014. Add in her 5th place finish at Challenge Bahran to finish off 2014 and you have an incredible season.

If Kirsten Sweetland doesn't get come-back athlete of the year, then Paula Findlay is a shoe-in for the award. After 2+ years of setbacks leading into the 2012 Olympics, Findaly finally found a new coach in Siri Lindley and a new health that has allowed her to train properly all year long. Findlay had four silvers in 2014 in different formats. 2nd in Kelowna, 2nd in Cartagena World Cup, 2nd in Noosa and 2nd at the Life Time Fitness Triathlon. The race where she had her biggest smile all year long however was her 15th place at home in the Grand Final. If Findlay can stay healthy, Siri Lindley can have her ready to fight for consistent top 8's in 2015.

A TRIO OF LONG DISTANCE SUCCESS

Athletes 5-6-7 were world class at the 70.3 racing format. Rachel McBride (5th), Magali Tisseyre (6th) and Melanie McQuaid (7th) had five half Ironman 70.3 victories between them. Each woman dominated at some point in the summer with McBraide coming 9th at the 70.3 Worlds (Tisseyre just behind in 10th). McQuaid may have been the most diverse of the three with success at Xterra, 70.3, Olympic distance and Ironman in 2014. The fact these three women are consistently close to the podium in 70.3 races, means Canada has some great depth to back up Wurtele & Naeth on the international scene
.
Sarah Anne Brault started the season off on fire, but struggled with injures as the year went on. After a win in Mooloolaba and a 4th in the WTS in Auckland, it looked like she might be the run away rookie of 2014. Brault had a 7th in Yokohoma Japan and then started to fade the last 3rd of the season. A foot injury sidelined her in Edmonton, but the energetic Winnipeg athlete is expected to be back in top form for 2015.

RTC WOMEN ROCKING
A Trio of Guelph athletes under Craig Taylor made big performances in 2014. Starting with Amelie Kretz from Quebec. Kretz knows how to put it together on big days and was 6th at the under 23 world championships (even though she lost two months of training due to a foot problem). With a victory at her national championship and the E-Games in Collingwood, Kretz did get to hear her anthem in 2014. She's a top swimmer and is expected to be a major factor in 2015. Joanna Brown had to miss the Grand Final due to a foot problem. None the less she four top 5's in 2014, and was second at the national championships. Another year of seasoning for the university student should have her ready to rock in 2015. The third of the trio, had the break-out of the year. While Dominika Jaminicky didn't make our top 10 list, she won the Toronto Triathlon on the strength of her great biking. She was 2nd at the E-Games, 4th in ITU Bridgetown and 5th at her National Champs. Just about ready to finish university, expect to see even bigger results from the new university graduate.

SHOULD ALICIA KAYE BE CANADIAN ATHLETE OF THE YEAR

As her coach for many years, in Canada, I am biased. Overlooked by Triathlon Canada, Alicia Kaye moved to the USA where she married Olympian Jarrod Shoemaker. Kaye represented Canada on many occasions before she took residence in Florida with her husband. If I were voting in the USA, I would put Alicia 2nd in the rankings after Gwen Jorgensen for athlete of the year. While we don't have her up for Canadian triathlete of the year, it pains me that she is no longer wearing the Maple Leaf. Her 2014 season was truly remarkable. 1st Life Time Triathlon, 1st in 70.3 Muskoka, 1st 5150 Philadephia, 1st Minneapolis, 1st NYC, 1st Chicago Tri, 2nd Hy Vee, , 2nd Cap Tex, 3rd South Beach Tri. A pretty spectacular 2014 for a great person & long time friend.

LOOKOUT FOR THE YOUNG GUNS

C3's Kristen Marchant is the least known, but perhaps most successful woman in Canada. She is just about to graduate University of Waterloo. Marchant, has not lost a race in two years at various distances. That includes two National Age Group Titles (as fastest amateur in Canada) two World 20-24 Championships (both in London & in Edmonton), a dozen Multisport Triathlons and perhaps her finest performance at the Barrleman 1/2 Ironman in Niagara Falls. Marchant won the race by nearly 20 minutes, was 4th amongst all men and did race times at the 1/2 Ironman distance that indicates she can step right into the pro ranks next year and be very competitive.

Four teenagers are ready to make the move in 2015. Emily Legault, Elizabeth Boutin, Emily Wagner & Kirsten Vergara all showed their youth is not a problem. The four raced all over North America and represented Canada at the World Junior Championships as well as the Youth Olympic Games.
