COACH: JEFF SCULL, B.SC., M.A.
Jeff grew up in Niagara where he enjoyed an illustrious high school cross country running and track & field career winning multiple Ofsaa medals and securing a full ride scholarship to Syracuse University where he studied Nutrition. Following his studies, Jeff went on to represent Team Canada in Cross Country running at the 2006 World Championships in Japan. Shortly after, Jeff transitioned to the sport of triathlon and spent two years training and competing as a member of Triathlon Canada’s regional training centre in Guelph. Jeff has now completed his Master's in Applied Health Science at Brock University where he interviewed professional triathlon coaches on their motivational strategies.
