Chris Johnson Headed to Japan

Konichiwa everyone!

We are excited to announce that Thunderbirds endurance coach, Chris (CJ) Johnson, has been selected for the coaching staff for Team Canada headed to Japan next week for the Chiba Ekiden Relay.  It is a small, but very elite team heading to this relay, including Vancouver’s Chris Winter and Dylan Wykes, and newly crowned Canadian Marathon record holder, Lanni Marchant.  To be supporting such elite athletes on his first National Team assignment is a great testament to CJ’s ability as a coach and a vote of confidence from the team’s head coach, Dave Scott-Thomas. 

Congrats on the assignment, CJ!
