Pat Shaffer

About Pat: I'm a 70 year old triathlete. In 2010, when I was about to retire I started competing in triathlons but was not prepared for open water swimming. In 2012, after joining a woman's triathlon team (TrilaVie), I mastered my open water swimming fear & was hooked. I have now completed 48 multisport events including most distances except Ironman. Competing in these events has given me a sense of pride, accomplishment, teamwork & enjoyment.

Sport Discipline: Triathlon, Aquathlon, Aquabike

Most memorable moment in your multisport career: Competing as a member of Team USA in London & crossing the finish line while holding a small US flag - my first international event.
