About herself: „I have been a personal trainer and coach for 20+ years. I was a NCAA division 1 track and field athlete. Post college I ran several marathons, duathlons and triathlons. I have completed several Ironman triathlons as well as being a Team USA member.”
About himself: „From the Sprint distance (750m, 20km, 5km), Olympic distance (1,5km, 40km,10km), X-Terra (Cross-country Olympic distance), up to the Half-Ironman (1.9km, 90km, 21.1km), the variety of Triathlon is my choices. Triathlon is an important and central aspect of my life since I am 15 years old. In 1996 at the Spiezathlon I won directly my very first Triathlon and became only a year later a member of the Swiss National Team. Since then Triathlon is not only a sport, but a life school and philosophy which I follow with great passion. In the following years I had many great moments, like winning the multiple times the national title and winning several international races. In 2008 I retired from professional sport after graduating from University, only to discover 4 years later that I have still got this sport virus in me. Now I am again in search of my personal boundaries, but this time in the Xterra/Cross Triathlon competitions.”
