Sharon Donnely: Triathlon


Sharon Donnelly is a three-time Canadian Champion and Pan American Games gold medallist in Triathlon, a sport that requires skill in three continuous and sequential disciplines, most often swimming, cycling and running.

Sharon Donnelly's greatest attribute is probably not her physical stamina, but her inner strength. Her display of sheer will at the Sydney Olympics became the stuff of sporting legend when, bloodied and bruised after a nasty bike crash she pushed on and still managed to finish the race.
