Sport Discipline: Triathlon,Duathlon

Most memorable moment in your multisport career: It's not often that you can string together a perfect race, especially when it involves the different disciplines and transitions of a multisport race. The 2017 World Championships for sprint duathlon was a perfect race for me. I feel lucky to have had that experience and I'll never forget it.
