PCC Head Coach Houshang Amiri and athlete Annie Ewart are the recipients of a Petro –Canada Fuelling Athletes and Coaching Excellence (FACE) Grant.

Working together with the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC), Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC) and their National Sport partners, the FACE program, provides developing, pre-carded, Canadian athlete and coach pairings with $8,000.

“This is a grant that can be used on an athlete’s program and preparation towards certain National or International performance targets,” said Amiri. “Funding like this becomes important since high performance services are fee based, and so we need funds to spend on those services - services such as performance camps, heat and altitude training, performance monitoring and performance management.”

Amiri has coached Ewart since 2010 and under his guidance she won the Canadian Junior Time Trial and Road Race Titles in 2011. In 2012 she turned professional with Optum Pro Cycling p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies.
