About Lynne Bermel

Lynne Bermel Lynne Bermel is a corporate communications and marketing expert as well as a television host and columnist for a number of publications. During her career, she has interviewed dignitaries, media celebrities, sports personalities and everyday people, both for print and television.

A former professional athlete, she brings a wealth of experience and credibility to her coverage of professional and amateur sports. It also gives her a unique perspective on why people compete, whether it’s for the gold medal or the triumph over personal adversity. Having achieved a top 5 world ranking in the IronmanTM, she has a special insight into endurance sports, which she has successfully translated to other sports at the local, national and international levels.

Among her many athletic achievements, Lynne was the gold medalist at the World Military Triathlon Championships in Ghent Belgium. She also helped her team to a silver medal at the World Military Games in Italy and has represented her native Canada at numerous other events around the world. She is also one of the first females inducted into the Canadian Forces Sports Hall of Fame.

Lynne understands media from both sides of the camera. As a triathlete, she’s been covered around the globe by ESPN, TSN, Japanese, Australian and European TV, and has been written about extensively by the print media. As a journalist, she has interviewed such luminaries as former Secretary of State Colin Powell, self-help guru Robin Sharma, NHL broadcaster Ron MacLean and Walter Gretzky, father of the greatest hockey player of all time.

On the marathon and triathlon front, she’s interviewed many of the greats: Frank Shorter, Grete Waitz, Uta Pipping, Katherine Switzer, Dave Scott and Paula Newby-Fraser. Her recent stories have featured current stars like Simon Lessing, Simon Whitifield, Heather Fuhr, Lisa Bentley, Peter Reid and Chris MacCormack.

Lynne has published a national magazine for the Canadian military. In television, she writes the scripts for the shows she hosts and then delivers on camera. She has an innate ability to identify good storylines and can get her interviewees to talk openly and freely about the things that matter most to the viewer.

Lynne’s latest interviews are available on the RunnersWeb, one of the most popular multi-sport sites in the world, at
