Jan 20, 2014
It is with great pride that LifeSport honours the Triathlon Hall of Fame induction of two of the most legendary triathletes in Canada. Both Simon and Lisa were coached in their careers by LifeSport's Lance Watson.
Lisa Bentley was coached by Lance through 11 years of her career, including her first Ironman win and all 20 subsequent wins at the Ironman and 70.3 distance, including 3 at Ironman Canada. Her top finish at Hawaii World Championships was an impressive 3rd, especially considering Lisa battled mild, but often debilitating CF during training.

The AGR allows triathletes the opportunity to see how their race performances compare to competitors in their age group throughout the calendar year.
