I got into triathlon after one of my school teachers challenged one of the class to race against her. I loved the atmosphere at the race and was hooked. Since coming to Nottingham I've only got more involved in the sport through the club (yes we even welcome PhD students). I may not be the fastest swimmer but I'm always up for a dip in a new body of water.
Fun fact: I now coach as well as train with the club.

Role: Club Captain
Hello I'm Lucy! I joined triathlon last year and absolutely loved it despite never swimming properly before! So... I decided to carry it on this year... and join the committee - figured that by the time I finish my course (7 years) I might be able to keep up with everyone at the swimming sessions! I'll aim to make the sessions inclusive and fun!
Fun fact: When not on my road bike I can be seen round campus on my 'sit up and beg' commuter bike complete with basket! On my bucket list for 3rd year is to cycle round campus with an ET look alike in my basket.
Role: General Secretary/ Welafre
Name: ALEXANDRA GUERRERO
I’m a 3rd year English student and this year’s general secretary and welfare officer. When I was 14, I realised I didn’t know how to swim and took myself along to swimming lessons with 7 year olds. From there, I started running and cycling and dipped in and out of triathlon until joining UoNTri in first year. Now, I train to de-stress and spend time with lovely and likeminded people.
Fun fact: I have to take snacks everywhere I go so that I don’t faint.

Role: Social Secretary
NAME: HAL COWLING
I am currently a 2nd Year physics student (we're not all boring I promise). I've been running for a few years now and boogieing for even longer, so when I joined uni I decided to step it up to triathlon having seen what the community was like. Flora and I will be running your socials this year!

Role: Social Secretary
NAME: FLORA LE BORGNE
I’m in my second year of chemistry. I have done triathlon for 3 years now. I started just after I saw my mum take part in her first triathlon and saw the team spirit and all the encouragement she got even though she wasn’t one of the fastest. Triathlon helped me settle into uni a lot easier by making more new friends so I wanted to try return the favour for someone else by joining the committee.
Fun Fact: I have been to 22 different parkruns including one in Paris and one in Milan
