Athlete of the month

Our RIVA Athlete of the Month is Ben Shesadri. Ben joined Riversdale in Grade 5 after Coach RossAnn recruited him and his brother from a local triathlon. His favourite Riversdale moment was travelling to Kenya with the Middle Distance team in 2019.

Ben’s PB’s are pretty impressive with 800m- 1:53, 1500m- 3:55, 3000m- 8:37 and 5km road- 15:34

In his spare time Ben enjoys running, cycling, camping and hiking.

Ben will start his 2nd year running for the University of Victoria Vikes this fall, and is excited to race at CanWest and Usports.

We have enjoyed seeing you around the track for spring and summer training and competing with RIVA again! Keep up the great work Ben!

Coach of the month

RIVA’s Coach of the Month is Jared Olson!

Jared joined Riversdale when he was 12 after being at STFC since he was 10. He trained and competed with RIVA until university where he trained and competed with the Huskies, having a successful track career becoming a 6x Medallist in the 60mH & 4x200m relay at the Canada West level and National champion in the 60mH and 4x200m relay in 2016. He was named the CIS Student Athlete of the Year in 2016. After graduating with a BComm from the University of Saskatchewan, he came back to Riversdale coaching the hurdles and sprints crew and has been coaching with RIVA ever since.

Jared’s favourite Riversdale moments are the annual Alberta Indoor Games trip we make as a club. He loves seeing the team get behind each other and enjoy the sport collectively instead of just individually. His favourite coaching moments are definitely starting with new hurdlers and watching them grow, going from scared of hurdles to attacking them.

Jared is a self proclaimed coffee snob, which led him into opening up Revolve Cafe in Saskatoon. You can also find him playing slowpitch and weightlifting in his spare time!

Jared’s personal coaching goal would be to coach on a National team one day! We don’t think it is too out of reach, any National team would be lucky to have him!

Thank you Jared for all you do for Riversdale!
