Ten years ago, she burst onto the world scene in dominating fashion. Winning 5 World Triathlon series events in a 12-month window as a 21-year-old. After those events, she dealt with several almost career-ending injuries. And spent the better part of a decade rebuilding herself. In the last few years we’ve started to see glimpses again of the great champion and on Dec 6th, 2020 at the Challenge Daytona, PTO championships, we saw more than a glimpse, we saw the physical prowess, the mental fortitude, and the emotional strength of one of the worlds greatest back on top with a dominating exhibition of how to race a Triathlon.
