COACHKINLEY GIBSON

Kinley Gibson has had a lifelong passion for endurance sport, and first became involved with the Edmonton Triathlon Academy as an athlete in 2010. She spent three years racing under head coach Kevin Clark, learning key lessons in training management, race day strategies, and how to find the balance between hard work and fun when pursuing triathlon goals!

She eventually made the transition to track cycling out of the triathlon program, where she found success at the national and international level. She raced as a national team athlete from 2014 to 2020, where she won multiple national championships, achieved numerous World Cup podium placings, and competed in the 2018 Commonwealth Games for Canada. Throughout her experience in elite cycling, her time with the ETA served as a valuable knowledge base in navigating the many challenges posed by a life competing at the highest level.

Kinley stepped away from the national team in 2020 and transitioned into her role as a cycling coach and personal trainer. She is an ACE-certified trainer and is currently completing her NCCP Competition Development certification in cycling. Kinley works with cyclists of any age who have performance-specific goals, and loves the problem-solving, creativity, and human connection that is the foundation of any great program. As part of the ETA, Kinley works specifically with younger athletes new to the world of road cycling, helping to build the skills required to be a successful triathlete while having lots of fun along the way!
