Info: Originally Lizzie was a young swimmer, but chose to invest time into track running throughout secondary and tertiary education. Her neighbour suggested trying Off-road triathlon and she’s been hooked ever since ! Over the past years she has been improving her biking skills and has loved getting back into the pool. Running feels like home and she’s always keen to race. Having achieved World Amateur Champion and consistently performing at the top of her age group, she decided to compete as a PRO (while still maintaining a full time job). Results were very promising so she decided in early 2015 to work part time and really explore what she could achieve with more training and racing under her belt. She’s loved the journey so far and has racked up some results she’s very proud of, it’s made her hungry for more and optimistic about the future.
