Kelly Livingstone - Athlete Services

1. How did you get involved with WTS Edmonton?

I started with WTS during the 2014 Grand Final helping out with Athlete Services, and they haven’t been able to shake me since.

2. What is your role with WTS Edmonton?

Athlete Services Manager

3. What does your role involve?

Mostly anything that involves athletes outside of the course – so athlete packages, registration, accommodation, transportation, various other –ations.

4. What is your favourite part of the job?

Being able to see all the planning and hard work play out on race day.

5. Do you participate in triathlon events?

If being a spectator counts as participating, then yes.

6. What is your sport of choice?

I really like downhill skiing, I particularly enjoy that the chairlift does 90% of the work.

7. What tips can you offer to athletes on “maximizing their experience” at WTS Edmonton?

There’s nothing more satisfying than racing by the friends you recruited as volunteers! Actually though, I definitely do recommend coming out to watch all the different races that are going on.  Part of what I think makes this event so cool is being able to watch elite athletes race one day and then being able to do the same course yourself the next.

8. What are you looking forward to in 2018 and beyond?

I’m really looking forward to seeing the Mixed Relay this year as it’s always super exciting to watch.

9. Tell us a little something about yourself?

Controversially, I love dogs and cats equally.
