The Coaching Association of Canada is pleased to announce the names of the 43 coaches honoured with a 2010 Petro-Canada Coaching Excellence Award. These prestigious awards recognize coaches whose athletes have excelled at World Championships and/or the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Six cycling coaches are included in the Excellence Awards.

"2010 was a great year for Canadian sport - from the first Olympic gold medal won on Canadian soil to the numerous podium performances at World Championships, Canadian athletes have excelled.
