Three Canadian coaches have been recognized by the Coaching Association of Canada with Petro-Canada Coaching Excellence Awards for 2020. The cycling coaches are Richard Wooles for his work with para-cyclist Ross Wilson, head Para coach Sébastien Travers for his work with Tristen Chernove and Kate O'Brien, and Guillaume Plourde for his work with Tristen Chernove.
Petro-Canada will recognize 23 coaches from 10 unique sports with the annual Coaching Excellence Awards. These prestigious awards recognize coaches whose athletes have achieved a medal at World Championships, Olympic or Paralympic Games, or the Special Olympics World Games. Petro-Canada has honoured 1,259 coaches with this award since 1986.
"The recognition we are jointly celebrating tonight [Thursday] is a testament to the importance of the NCCP program and the significance it can have within an individual, a coach, an athlete and an inspired team," says Kristina Schaefer, Director, Petro-Canada Brand Loyalty. "Each recipient has been instrumental in building courageous and successful athletes, and we are proud to honour the accomplishments of these exceptional coaches. My sincere congratulations to all our recipients."
