Flora is perhaps one of the best all-around triathletes on the planet. She not only crushes the ITU WTS circuit, she’s a 2x Olympian (3rd will be in Rio this year), she’s also won 4 World Championships with off road triathlon and mountain bike racing. She has a great story, be sure to check it out!
This has to be one of the most powerful stories from all of Endurance Sports on FIRE!. Flora talks about racing in the 2008 Olympics as a 20 year old, retiring from the sport of triathlon, then coming back to race in the 2012 Olympics, win 3 World Championships and will race in the 2016 Olympics in Rio. You have to listen to this story.
Flora started racing professionally at the age of 18. So what advice would she give herself or another 18 year old who was either on the verge or has already become a professional. The advice: surround yourself with the best support system you can. You have to listen to Flora talk about her earlier career and the lack of support she received at an early age.
