Jenna Nestman: "The injury that took me out of contention for the games. It was life altering.
I found myself really yearning for a daily practice and finally got to the point where, like, I understood that I needed to move my body and that I'm here to move my body.
I turned my focus towards triathlon and I don't really do anything half-assed so I decided to go for it. I found that my power on the bike was pretty decent and led me to essentially hang up my goggles and my running shoes and just go for cycling.
My goal on the track was to ride internationally for Canada. Really the focus was the games. To have it so laid out and then to throw an injury into it, it shattered me. I had to rethink everything.
I think it's the everyday push to getting better and the knowing that I haven't done everything that I can.
In 2021 I'll be riding and racing for Red Truck Racing. To race internationally is definitely my goal and to get back on the track and to race for Canada in the near future. And potentially Paris 2024. I think there's so much more I can show the world."
