After nearly two years of working with Cycling Canada's future Women's Track Endurance medal prospects, Cameron Jennings heads back home to Australia.
As of May 1st, Jennings will trade his red and white colors for the green and gold of Cycling Australia, where he will fill the position of Cycling Australia's Para-Cycling Assistant Coach.
"I am obviously excited about this new and challenging opportunity with Cycling Australia, the move back home, and being closer to our family and support network," said Jennings. "However, it is a move that comes with sadness as I leave behind a great organization, fantastic colleagues, and a group of athletes that I care deeply for. During my 5 years here in Canada, I hope that I had a positive impact on the athletes that I worked with. I am wishing the girls in the program, and all the other athletes that I worked with, success in the future and I hope that the WTE NextGen program continues to grow and find its feet within the Cycling Canada landscape."
During his tenure as Women's Track Endurance NextGen Coach, Jennings was entrusted to build the foundation of Cycling Canada's Women's Track Endurance program and ensure a steady flow of athletes coming up the ranks, from club and provincial programs.
"We want to thank Cam for the couple of years he's had with us and the contributions he's made to Cycling Canada's high performance programs," commented Jacques Landry, Cycling Canada's Chief Technical Officer and Head Coach.
"The comfort I have in seeing Cam leave to go back home is that I know he will be able to continue to grow as a coach, in an environment that is perhaps better suited for him and his growing family. I wish him great success, but not too much," joked Landry.
Cycling Canada will be looking in the next few weeks to fill the position made vacant by Jennings' departure.
