Tyler Mislawchuk grew up playing hockey in his native Canada. He was first introduced to triathlon as a way to boost his fitness on the ice. He quickly showed his talent for the multi-sport discipline and turned his focus to it at age 15. Tyler experienced his share of ups and downs in his early triathlon years, suffering several injuries from crashes, but by 2015 he was competing at the elite level. A year later he finished 15th at the 2016 Olympics in Rio and has been on the rise ever since. Tyler won the Canadian National Championship in 2017. Two years later, he became the first Canadian man to podium at a World Triathlon Series event, earning bronze in Montreal. That same year he won the Olympic test event in Tokyo, then went on to finish 15th at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, which were held in the summer of 2021.

How did you start in triathlon?I started triathlon as a means to cross train for hockey. I was playing the highest level of hockey in Canada at that point and fell in love with the process of pushing myself every day across three brand new sports. I found the harder I worked the better I got.
