Sarah Hanney - Creative Services & Protocol Manager

1. How did you become involved with WTS Edmonton?

I volunteered as DJ for 3 summers first for the event and also managed the website as a side job.​ I became full time team member in 2016.

2. What is your role with WTS Edmonton?

    I ​just recently transitioned from​ athlete services coordinator​ to Creative Services & Protocol Manager

3. What does your role involve? ​

    Any graphic design, website/app needs I handle. I also still help with some athlete services/ITU things.

4. What is  your favourite part of the job? ​

    I get to be creative and have a certain amount of freedom. I like that it's sort of a mix bag so I'm not just doing one thing. I like that we overlap with eachothers roles.

5. Have you/ do you participate in triathlon events?​

    Those who don't do.....organise!!

6. What is your sport of choice?

    Gaelic football (​google it)​​

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

    Just make a whole day of it! Bring the family - there's a kids zone, relax and have a beer after your race. My favourite event is the World Paratriathlon Series​ - that is an amazing race to watch.

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

    I'm looking forward to this new role and getting more experience. I am feeling the excitement for 2020 already so can't wait!​

Tell us a little something about yourself:

    I moved over here from Ireland ​over ​6 years ago. Puns and dad jokes are my specialty!
