PO2 Lambert tops the fitness charts

The phrases “Going Gold” and “Going Platinum” have been used in the music industry for years to describe record-breaking album sales. On top of being a fantastic musician with the Stadacona Band of the Royal Canadian Navy, PO2 Courtney Lambert has her own gold and platinum records going for her, and only over the course of a few days. On July 4, PO2 Lambert scored platinum on the FORCE Operational Fitness Evaluation with an almost perfect score of 399/400, placing her in the top 1% of all Canadian Armed Forces members since the start of the FORCE Evaluation back in 2013. Just two days later she won a gold medal in the CAF Triathlon National Championships in Gatineau, QC.
“I feel very lucky to have the resources and support in my workplace to be able to prepare for a competition like this,” PO2 Lambert states. “I am so grateful for all the opportunities to participate in CAF national sports and completely surprised and ecstatic to have come away with a CAF gold medal!”
PO2 Lambert is a member of the Navy Tridents Triathlon Club, and her next race is with the MultiSport Canada triathlon series in Wasaga Beach at the end of August.
