Athlete Profile

Muriel Gieni - Riversdale Athlete Profile

My son, Morgan, joined the Riversdale Club about 20 years ago, and head coach Doug Boyd, who promoted physical fitness for all, invited any interested parents to get out of their car and take part in base training with the group….so I did. (Who gets opportunities like that to run on the same team as your kid!) Ross Ann Edwards was my first coach and Joel Senick was one of my first young teammates. Once I got into amazing shape Don Hedman started to poke at me about competing in the masters age class….so I did. It was established that I may have potential in hurdles and jumps and have since trained with some of the best athletes and coaches in Canada and competed Nationally and Internationally. We work very hard and form very close relationships!

My Track and Field success is a direct result of Riversdale Clubs’ high-level coaching in hurdles, jumps, sprints, throws and most recently the 800M! Some highlights:

Upcoming Challenges: So, the track is my happy place and I am very fortunate to have a great supportive husband Neal. We are kept very busy visiting, helping out and attending special events with our 3 grown children, their spouses and 5 grandchildren in Victoria, Edmonton and Saskatoon, all of whom we love hanging-out with!

During the Easter break, 16 Riversdale athletes and 4 coaches will be heading to Clermont, Florida for a warm weather training camp. The camp will include training for the middle distance, sprint/hurdles and jumps athletes with strength training included. This will be an opportunity for the athletes to focus, without the distractions of home,.on skill development, speed and volume, as well as good nutrition and sleep habits.

We could not provide this opportunity to our athletes without the support of our sponsors. We would like to graciously thank MN Fence + Deck for their sponsorship of the April Spring Training Camp. Spring has almost sprung, so please consider MN Fence + Deck for your deck and fence projects coming up and in the future!
