Two-time Olympic athlete Tyler Mislawchuk has led the team with a new look at Canax to the starting line of the elite race. Oak Bluff, Massachusetts has joined Emmy Legart (Rilpero), Charles Pake (Paul Cartier), and Dominika Jamnicky (Guelph, Ontario). The Canadian 4 packs were combined at a time of 1:29:06.

"It was the most amazing experience. It was a dream come true to be able to return to this level of racing and step into it and devote everything to it," said Team Canada's Anchor. Jamnicky, who served as the leg, said. "It was unrealistic to be with three amazingly talented Canadian triathletes and set them apart."
