Triathlon - Andrew Tanner

Andrew Tanner
Professional Triathlete

There is a lot of coverage in the media on the sport of triathlon in the United States. But Canada is also beginning to recognize that it has a strong, talented group of athletes participating in this growing sport, spread out across the entire country. Nestled in the small town of La Prairie, Quebec resides Andrew Tanner, a Canadian triathlete, duathlete and Ironman professional. To people unfamiliar with the province of Quebec, it may seem like a serious multisport athlete would require a parka (or at least a dependable windbreaker) to make it through a long day of training. But whether training or competing, Andrew makes sure that he always includes his KINeSYS sunscreen with his necessary equipment. "When I'm out on a long Ironman training ride, I use KINeSYS sun protection because it lasts." Andrew's exhausting 6 day a week training regimen is obviously paying off based on his recent competition results. We like to think that the performance of KINeSYS products have contributed to his winning race resume. For information on Andrew in French, visit his website at:
