Who is Marcelo Sulkin?

Marcelo Sulkin is a Physical Education teacher who has been personally involved in sports since he was seven years old. That is when he started his first swimming lessons and soon after, started to compete in swimming. At the same time, he started playing tennis with his older brother and began to compete in that too.

Marcelo branched into water polo, and as a competitive player won many national and international titles. He started open water swimming for which he won many races. He is a Level 2 water polo coach, and took the Calgary Renegades' juvenile and senior girls to National.

As an adult he has participated in many other competitive sports such as volleyball, basketball, racquetball, and squash.

As part of the training for these different sports, he got involved in long distance running, specifically half and full marathons.

He has been a triathlete since 2003 and became a certified triathlon coach in 2010. He has competed in meets from Olympic to Ironman distance, and shared the podium from 3rd place to 1st place in his age category multiple times.

Why Coaching?

Marcelo has always been interested in developing and helping athletes to get better at what they do. That is why he has become a triathlon coach in addition to his training in physical education. He is a certified bike fitter, having taken courses in Los Angeles and Seattle.

For a triathlete, a well-fitted and adjusted bike can make a significant difference in comfort and results. In his opinion, athletes don't pay enough attention to a well-fitted bike especially considering that the bike portion of a marathon is the longest of all the elements of the race.


"Hard work and dedication."

These qualities are needed from both Coach Marcelo and you, the athlete.

Marcelo will test you on all three sports, analyze every component and element with the goal to improve your performance. Marcelo will be in constant dialogue with you to ensure progress.
