Olympian Tyler Mislawchuk visits Grade 5, Nov. 14/19


By Avery, Isla & Alice, Grade 5

Yesterday, November 14, 2019, we met Tyler Mislawchuk, a 25-year-old Olympic triathlete.

He was very inspirational. His first professional triathlon in 2011 did not go smoothly. He got into a bicycle crash, breaking three ribs and his leg. His second race did not go better, and he broke his jaw and lost some of his front teeth. On the day of his third race, he got sick. His parents, Fred & Eleanor Mislawchuk, thought he might give up. At that time, they were his biggest supporters and fans. In his fourth race, finally, he did not crash, but he finished second last. Then, in the next race, he came in sixth — good job, Tyler! He has even competed in the Olympics! Right now he is ranked fifth in the world!

He gave us some really good advice, "day by day," which means to break your big goal down into smaller goals to succeed. He also told us to "dream crazy" and believe even if it means sacrificing everything. Tyler was a great inspiration to all of us. We had an amazing visit!
