Ambassadors

USA Triathlon is proud to feature three ambassadors of the Legacy Triathlon. These Los Angeles locals are passionate about the sport of triathlon, and are strong influencers within their communities. They strive to make multisport accessible to all, and are advocates of this brand new event. Join them and start your Legacy today!

Audra Mallow

Audra has been a triathlete for seventeen years, and an Ironman for nine years. She loves the camraderie of the sport, the ability to continue competing and pushing herself, and the high level of health and fitness that she has been able to find. Audra is a seven-time Ironman, a fourteen-time 70.3 finisher (one at World Championships) and has many Olympic and Sprint races under her belt, as well as a few podium finishes. She relishes bringing people to the sport, and enjoys seeing how accomplishing a race can affect someone in both sport and life.

Michael MallowMichael Mallow

Michael was a runner and a weight lifter until he met his wife, Audra, who in 2013 introduced him to triathlon at the age of 47. The thrill of continuing to improve keeps Michael going, and he strives to continually set the bar higher. He is a four-time Ironman, has competed in the 70.3 World Championships, and had his first podium finish last year. The balance between work and training keeps him sharp as both a lawyer and an athlete.

Rosalind Jarrett SepulvedaRosalind

A nine-time member of Team USA, the 2008 Aquathlon World Champion, 2011 Xterra Southern California Trail Run Series Regional Champion, and 2015 USA Triathlon Duathlon National Champion in her age group, Rosalind Jarrett Sepulveda is living proof that a love of multisport can start at any age. Sixteen years ago, after receiving news that her health was declining, the then 54-year old competed in her first triathlon, encouraged by the support and camaraderie of the Los Angeles Triathlon Club. Passion for a new sport was ignited, and within two years Jarrett was named LA Tri Club’s Volunteer of the Year, and within four years she had qualified for her first World Championship. Her health is now better-than-ever, and her passion for swim, bike, and run continually grows. She has now become a frequent fixture atop local podiums, with a goal of conquering the courses at the Legacy Triathlon.

See Something, Say Somethingsee something say something

USA Triathlon supports "If You See Something, Say Something®," a national campaign led by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), at its events. The

 campaign raises public awareness of the indicators of terrorism and terrorism-related crime, as well as the importance of reporting suspicious activity to state and local law enforcement. Informed, alert communities play a critical role in keeping our nation safe. We can all help keep our communities safe by paying attention to our surroundings and reporting suspicious activity to local law enforcement.

USA Triathlon Sportsmanship Creed

As competitive athletes and members of the triathlon community, you know there is no better feeling than succeeding in your endeavors in sport. As a competitor at USA Triathlon events, you have a responsibility to demonstrate the highest standards of sportsmanship per the USA Triathlon Rulebook (Article III, Sections 3.3 and 3.4, Line b.), and as such, should always show respect for the sport, your fellow athletes, race staff, officials, volunteers and spectators. Each individual athlete shares this responsibility, which includes refraining from the use of improper language and conduct detrimental to the community at large. This rule will be strictly enforced and disrespectful language or conduct will not be tolerated.

For more information on USA Triathlon rules and sportsmanship, please reference the USAT Competitive Rules.
