magaliweb-300x2981Press Release: It is with much excitement that TYR announces the signing of Magali Tisseyre to the list of the sports top triathletes, through 2011.

It is a privilege to join such a great team and I love the TYR products so I’m a very happy girl right now!” exclaimed Tisseyre.

The 27-year-old Canadian brings extensive experience as a duathlete and fresh energy as a rising star in the sport of triathlon. Most recently, she won her first 70.3 race at the 2009 Ironman 70.3 Boise Triathlon on June 13th in 4:12:29. The finish was 24 minutes ahead of her previous year’s time-demonstrating the tremendous growth and potential that Tisseyre has in the sport.

“We are proud to welcome Magali to TYR’s group of elite athletes,” says TYR’s national sales manager Ryan Dolan. “She embodies what we look for when it comes to an ambassador for our brand. She is always smiling and the people around her are quick to comment on how committed she is to working hard and improving.”

Joining LifeSport and the “Official Coaches of Ironman,” this past year, Tisseyre is under the guidance of coach Lance Watson. Currently finishing up her masters thesis in biomechanics, she looks forward to focusing her attention completely to developing into one of the world’s strongest female triathletes.  Although focusing on the 70.3 distance, she has her eyes on the full Ironman distance in the future.

TYR looks to outfit and support Tisseyre as she continues to reach her full potential in the sport.
