D'autres priorités pour Dorion

Tucson, Arizona (DIAPO) - Mélanie Dorion a mis un terme à sa saison de vélo de montagne en regardant les autres concourir. Victime de problèmes de santé à maintes reprises au cours des derniers mois, la cycliste de l'équipe Ford-Devinci a assisté à la course NORBA de Mammoth Mountain, en Californie, à titre de spectatrice.

" Mon corps est claqué, a expliqué Dorion. Dans l'avenir immédiat, je vais mettre mes priorités sur autre chose que le vélo. Je rentre au pays le 17 septembre et j'entreprendrai les démarches pour obtenir mon visa de résidence aux États-Unis afin de retourner vivre à Tucson avec mon fiancé (Robert McGowan). J'entreprendrai également mes cours en naturopathie. "

Rappelons qu'au début de l'été, Dorion avait encore des chances de se qualifier pour les Jeux olympiques de Sydney. Malheureusement, une crise d'asthme en pleine course, au championnat du monde de Sierra Nevada, l'avait reléguée au 40e rang. Par la suite, ses résultats furent à l'image de son état de santé: parfois très bons, parfois indignes d'une cycliste ayant réalisé plusieurs top 20 en Coupe du monde.

" C'est bien certain que je vais continuer à faire du vélo, peut-être plus de route que de montagne, mais pour l'instant, j'ai le goût de décrocher un peu. J'ai commencé à lire des livres de naturopathie et j'ai le goût de reprendre les études, le goût de me remettre à apprendre. "

Comme l'athlète de Deux-Montagnes n'aura que 24 ans au mois de novembre, gageons un petit deux qu'elle aura des fourmis dans les jambes quand l'hiver laissera sa place au printemps.

National Regional Triathlon Traning Centre for Manitoba

Through the joint efforts of Triathlon Manitoba, Triathlon Canada, the National Sport Centre and Manitoba and Sport Manitoba, the sport of Triathlon will become the third sport to establish a National Regional Training Centre in the Province of Manitoba.

As with existing Manitoba-based Centres in swimming and volleyball, the National Triathlon Training Centre will help develop National Team athletes and coaches for participation in major events such as the Olympics, Pan American Games and World Championships.

The National Sport Centre - Manitoba will support high performance athletes in the areas of sport psychology, nutrition, strength and conditioning and exercise physiology.

"The National Sport Centre Manitoba emphasizes the holistic development of athletes and coaches. We are excited about this new partnership with the sport of Triathlon and look forward to helping Manitoba's high performance triathletes achieve personal and performance excellence" - Alex Gardiner, General Manager NSCM.

Sport Manitoba through it's High Performance Coaches Employment Program will provide the resources that will help enable Manitoba provincial team coach Gary Pallett to head up the Centre's coaching staff and to work closely with Triathlon Canada National Team coach Barry Shepley and Paul Regensberg from the National Triathlon Centre in Victoria, British Columbia in helping develop world class athletes. Triathlon Canada is hoping to develop numerous National Regional Training Centres around the country to help feed the Victoria Centre where Canada's National Team is situated.

"The Triathlon Centre will enable Manitoba's top triathletes and coaches to excel on the national and international stage," said Randy Anderson, Sport Manitoba's High Performance Programs Manager. "Sport Manitoba is pleased that another of our high performance coaches will be given the opportunity to train and develop athletes."

Mitch Kolbuck, President of Triathlon Manitoba has said, "This is a wonderful addition for the athletes of Manitoba as well as athletes from neighboring provinces. The centre will provide opportunities for advanced levels of training and athlete support that were not available locally in the past. Manitoba athletes will no longer be forced to relocate to other centres if they wish to pursue Triathlon at the elite level."

The establishment of the National Regional Triathlon Centre comes at a time when Triathlon is one of the fastest growing sports in Canada and the world. The sport makes it Olympic debut on Saturday in Sydney, Australia (Friday, September 15, 6:00 CST) where the Canadian Women have a strong chance at winning medals, and will be the first medals of the games to be awarded.
