Lots of people ask me about CPL or Canada Points list. This is the ranking
list of everyone in Canada and most international athletes.

You can look at this page for a description of the CPL list and the link to the actual list.
An interesting factoid is that we have 10 athletes in our training group that are ranked
top 10 in their year of birth in Canada. See if you can figure out who these athletes are.
