Sue Reynolds

About Sue: At 335 pounds, Sue Reynolds secretly daydreamed about participating in a triathlon. At the time, she couldn't even put on her own shoes. That daydream gave purpose to her dieting and exercise, and she ended up losing 200 pounds.  At age 60, she entered her first triathlon and was thrilled to cross the finish line dead last!  Two years later, she qualified for Team USA, and in 2017, she finished sixth in the world at the ITU Sprint World Triathlon Championship in Rotterdam.  Sue is the author of Anything Is Possible, a book about her crazy triathlon journey which she wrote to help others consider trying a triathlon.  Outside of triathlon, Sue is the president of an educational non-profit which she founded; and is a wife, mother, and grandmother.

 

Sport Discipline: Triathlon

Most memorable moment in your multisport career: When I think about my most memorable moment in triathlon, a million images flash through my mind.  One of my favorite moments was holding one finger in the air in victory as I crossed my first finish line - dead last!  Another was looking over the sea of bikes on race morning at my first National Championship.  But the memory that I cherish the most is when I stood at the start line of my first World Championship feeling so blessed.
