Triathlon

"Mont-Tremblant is where my inspiration comes from. It is where I lived my first sports experiences and this is where my dreams were born! Triathlon is a sport that has fascinated me for nearly 10 years."

Website Facebook Twitter Instagram
Magali Tisseyre discovers triathlon quite late and participates in her first triathlon event at the end of her first year of training: "It was a little crazy. But I believed in it." She then moves to Western Canada and devotes all her time to training. After an exciting early career podium, she suffers a chronic injury and must fight to stay in the sport. Since 2014, Magali is back on the competitive scene with more motivation than ever!

Objective
Dream big: Magali sees herself winning the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship.

Hobbies
Becoming a professional triathlete had a price. To reduce any risk of injury, Magali had to put aside all the other sports she loved: alpine skiing, waterskiing, mountain biking, motocross, snowboard cross, and windsurfing. But she is fine with her decisions; after her career, she intends to pick up where she left off.
For the moment, she fills her free time with relaxing activities that help her recover and rest: reading, watching movies, going to the beach with her boyfriend Éric, and creating video montages. Adventurous at heart, Magali loves travelling and always looks forward to discovering new places!
