Our #TriLoveStory

All great love stories have one thing in common… triathlon. Well, at least for these 12 couples that’s true! We asked YOU, the triathlon community, to submit your #TriLoveStory and we have chosen our favourites from all over the world to share in honour of the most loving day of the year - Valentine’s Day! Roses may be red and violets may be blue, but these swimmers, bikers and runners found love through triathlon and YOU COULD TOO!Elites Rachel Klamer (NED) and Richard Murray (RSA) Carolina and Andres from Colombia“Hello this is Carolina from Bogota, Colombia in South America and my Husband Andres is the love of my life! Andres and I love doing sports and we have been practicing and racing triathlons for the past two years.

He laughed at me when I told him I joined - yet, somehow, he did his first triathlon before I did one. Fast forward four years, and we’ve done several triathlons together, including two Ironmans and we both competed at the ITU Multisport World Championships in Penticton last summer. Triathlon has brought us together even more than our love of desserts and given us quality time together - Saturday’s are about century rides and chocolate croissant breaks. We can’t wait for the future to travel to destination triathlons. Currently, racing schedules are on hold for a year while we wait to find out where he’ll be for neurosurgery residency and I start my career as a speech-language pathologist.”Anna from Spain and Marcel from Australia“It was a sunny day in July 2013 in Palamós...
