Nulogy announced today that its CEO, Jason Tham, will be competing as part of the Canadian National Team at the International Triathlon Union AG (ITU) World Championships. The four-day event is set to take place October 18-22, 2012 at Queens Wharf in the heart of Auckland, New Zealand.
Over 3000 athletes from across the world will descend on the Auckland waterfront for the 2012 ITU World Triathlon Championships. It is the most prestigious race on the ITU calendar, deciding the 2012 ITU World Champion. The sport’s biggest superstars, including Olympians from over 20 nations, will compete in New Zealand. Simon Whitfield and Paula Findlay from Canada will be on the elite roster. Tham qualified in 2011 after competing in several events, including the Canadian Nationals that were held in British Columbia.
Canada is very passionate about triathlons, and has produced some of the world’s best triathletes. For Tham, this is both an honour and a dream come true. “Fitness and a healthy lifestyle have always been important to me. I am extremely excited to represent Canada in this event,” commented Tham. “At Nulogy, we compete globally, serving customers across four continents. To now be able to represent my country and meet others from around the world in a sport that I love, I feel very proud and blessed.” Tham is an accomplished athlete, being a ranked track and field varsity athlete, and more recently running the Boston Marathon. This will be Tham’s first World Triathlon Championships.
On the road to the World’s, Tham will also be competing in the first-ever Toronto Triathlon Festival (TTF) on July 22, 2012 alongside Simon Whitfield, who has both a gold and silver medal from two Olympic games. The TTF race will offer two World Championship Qualifying Spots for 2013 which will be held in Hyde Park, London on the 2012 Olympic course.
Tham acknowledged that through all his years of competitive racing, he would not be here without the support of his wife, family and coach. Tham is thrilled to have received backing from other notable technology entrepreneurs. “I know Jason will do his best to represent Canada, and I wish him the best,” said Art Mesher, CEO of Descartes Systems, the largest SaaS company in Canada and also Chairman of the Core Group, developers of the Core Recreational Complex and Elite Athlete Performance Centre in Kitchener, Waterloo. “As CEOs, we thrive on competition, though usually it’s for customers. I would like to applaud Jason in both his business and sporting endeavours.”
Jason qualified on a Cervélo bicycle and will be riding a Cervélo P-Series at the World’s. Phil White, co-founder and CEO of Cervélo Cycles also voiced support, “As a fellow Canadian entrepreneur, also doing business globally and building a leading brand, I’m glad to see Jason excelling at business and sport. Many of the world’s leading triathletes ride Cervélo, and I personally wish him luck in New Zealand as part of Team Canada.”
The event will be broadcast live on the internet and television. For more information on the ITU World Triathlon Championships visit:
