Like many a Canadian youngster, Tyler Mislawchuk grew up playing hockey, but that was also what helped him to discover triathlon, after a family friend suggested he use it as a form of cross-training. Not long after, Tyler was discovered by a Manitoba provincial coach, who encouraged him to train full time, and since 2015 he has been in the ascendency on the elite WTS circuit.
That debut year saw a handful of finishes in and around the top 20, including WTS London, WTS Yokohama and WTS Gold Coast, but it was in the opening race of 2016, WTS Abu Dhabi, that Mislawchuk scored his first top 10, kick-starting a solid year that included 15th place in the 2016 Olympic Games.
Fourth place in the 2018 WTS Yokohama and bronze at the Antwerp World Cup will have given Mislawchuk a taste of success that he will be looking to build upon across 2019 and set up a second Olympic appearance in Tokyo.
