City Logistics has committed to supporting two exceptionally talented South African sportsmen, in Michael Hollick (Golf) and Michael Cannon (Triathlete), as they pursue excellence in their respective sporting fields. You can get acquainted with both of them, by reading their respective introductions below. You can also catch up on their latest run of results, in the latest City Logistics Sponsorship blog feed.
I went to school at Selborne College in East London, and then went on to study my Masters (MSc) degree in Ergonomics at Rhodes University. I have been competing as triathlete for the last four years now, and have worked hard to reach the top of my game in South Africa.
I have represented the South Africa Triathlon Team for the last four years, have won my age-group at the South African Championships. I have been fortunate enough to compete at numerous Triathlon World Championships abroad, and represent the South African Elite Team, to compete at the ATU African Triathlon Championships in Agadir, Morocco.
I have recently moved to the longer format of the sport, and also compete in the Ironman 70.3 and Full Ironman distance races. In 2013, I managed to win my age-group at the Ironman 70.3 race in East London and finish 17th overall.
I live a very busy life, and work hard to keep it well-balanced. I am a married man, have recently had a newly born baby girl, work a full-time job and spend hours on the road and in the pool training. Despite the chaos, I manage to keep my commitments in check, while still being able to compete as a triathlete.
I have a very busy year planned with racing, and look forward to continue getting some great results. I look forward to sending regular updates on my progress over the upcoming season.
Last, but not least, I would like to thank City Logistics for their generosity and support for the exciting 2015 triathlon season.
