Annual Cornwall Triathlon is Coming Up This August.

This August 26th and 27th, the 14th annual Cornwall Triathlon will be well underway, with excited participants lining the streets.

Each year, a committee of ten community members organizes this event. Each member has a specific role to play in ensuring the Cornwall Triathlon is a top-notch event.

“While many of the committee are athletes, our responsibilities on the event weekend are too great to afford the possibility of competing as well. Many of the committee attend other running and triathlon events during the year,” says Rob Allen, one of the committee members.

Brennan Seguin Vaults to Under 20 Canadian National Pole Vaulting Champion.

Brennan Seguin Vaults to Under 20 Canadian National Pole Vaulting Champion

Pole vaulting is an expensive sport, even for a gold medalist at the Canadian Track and Field Championships. Brennan Seguin knows because he is the under 20 national pole vaulting champion. He soared to gold on the strength of a 4.7 metre leap; a performance that bettered his OFSAA gold vault by 30 centimetres.

The 18-year-old Char Lan student is modest about his accomplishments. Even though his national win came too late to secure him a spot in the Pan Am Games, he isn’t holding a grudge. “The guys who are going are great. They deserve to be there,” he said while preparing to practise early on a Wednesday morning.

And the best part of the National Championships? Meeting Andre De Grasse and shaking the man’s hand.

Ellery Maloney, recently spoke with Sports Energy News to remember his friend Pete Piquette. Piquette was a local hockey goaltender in the 1940’s and 50’s who saw great success in his hockey career, landing him a spot in the Cornwall Sports Hall of Fame.

Pete Piquette was an exceptional good goaltender and he started his junior hockey with the Cornwall Community Sports Club. Piquette was soon called to play with the Oshawa Generals Jr. A team in the OHA, (Currently OHL). Maloney recalls one of the highlights of Piquette’s time with the Generals was his encounter with George Armstrong, an All-Star player with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
