Fe­male Ju­nior Triath­lete of the Year

Triathlon Magazine Canada - - TRIATHLETE - De­sirae Ri­de­nour

It’s been quite a year for 19-year-old De­sirae Ri­de­nour, who has been a reg­u­lar on Canada’s Mixed Team Re­lay team and fin­ished a solid 17th at the Com­mon­wealth Games. Dur­ing her lead up to the Com­mon­wealths she took the ju­nior ti­tle in New Ply­mouth, New Zealand, and head­ing into the sum­mer took her first se­nior win at the Osaka-Cas­tle Asian Cup event. Ri­de­nour also qual­i­fied for the Su­per League Cham­pi­onship Se­ries thanks to her run­ner-up fin­ish at the Poz­nan qual­i­fier.

Her fi­nal ap­pear­ance at the world ju­nior cham­pi­onships Ri­de­nour didn’t achieve her goal of a podium fin­ish, but she did man­age her third con­sec­u­tive top-10 re­sult with her eighth-place fin­ish.
