Triathlon NL salutes Gerry Donovan

The triathlon community of Newfoundland and Labrador lost one of its pillars on January 19th 2016, with the passing of Gerry Donovan.

Gerry was an inspiration to anyone who has been fortunate to share a race course with him. A friend to all and a fierce competitor. He was a permanent fixture at most races in this province for the past 25 years.

It was his racing, training, volunteering and coaching, that helped develop triathlon in this province to the level it is at today. He was physically gifted, compassionate, and caring. We will all miss him, but as long as we look out for each other and continue to swim, bike and run, Gerry’s spirit will live on.
