“Coach Bjoern took me from someone who couldn’t swim a length of a pool and had never raced a Triathlon through to winning the ITU Age Group Long Distance World Championships, in just over 2 years.”
“After practice, one day in late 2013 Coach Bjoern said ‘good job, but you are not working hard enough to reach your full potential’, he was right. He challenge me more during training and the results came! In 2014 I won the Canadian National Duathlon Championships. This year (2016) I’ll be racing at Worlds, both in Spain and Mexico.

“I’ve been with Team Ossenbrink for 5 years. When I started I was a recreational athlete, happy to just complete events, I wasn’t particular athletic as a child. Stephanie had to teach me every from the ground up – training plans, nutrition, technique, skills, goal setting, mental toughness etc.
Steph & Bjoern have put together a wonderful training group and they lead by example. They create group workouts for all teammates, regardless of ability. The whole team is positive and encouraging and members of Team Ossenbrink have become some of my closest friends.
Thanks to Steph & Bjoern, I’ve had opportunities that I never even dreamed were possible a few short years ago. I’m very proud of my athletic accomplishments, but even more proud of the person I’ve become. They have given me the strength and the confidence to take on any challenge.”

“Being a member of Team Ossenbrink and being coached by Bjoern has helped me grow tremendously as an athlete. I am now a stronger- and faster- athlete than I was back in 2011. I have reached levels that I thought were out of my realm. I have trained with Bjoern through pregnancy and kept “competing” at a fairly high level. I cannot wait for the years to come!”
