Day 16 of my Olympic audio interview series features an athlete who competed in the triathlon at the 2012 Olympics in London…Kyle Jones.
In this interview, our discussion includes Kyle’s Olympic memories and connections from a young age, how he got into triathlon leading to him being a Canadian junior champion, training with Simon Whitfield and later being his teammate, his 2012 Olympic experience (he was the highest placing Canadian in 25th) and what he’s doing now.

NOTE: While we wait for local sports to return following the COVID-19 pandemic, a big part of JG Sports Media’s website content will be audio interviews, like this one. Guests will include representatives from local sports organizations as well as other notable guests, many who have ties to this area and even some who don’t.
I love the Olympics and this series will run from July 24 until Aug. 9. This is the time the Games would have been on before they got postponed until 2021.
