A swimmer by background, in 2005 Rachel grew bored of the pool and decided to give triathlon a go. Still working as an attorney by day, Rachel achieved some promising age group results, including winning her age group at the inaugural Ironman 70.3 World Championships in 2006. Then in 2008, the London native, now living in Boulder, went pro and the rest is a very successful history. Less than a year later she placed 6th at her first Ironman World Championships. She now has five top ten finishes in Kona to her name, including 3rd and 2nd in 2013 and 2014 respectively, as well as the 2011 World ITU Long Course title, and three other long course titles – and she holds the 5th fastest time ever for women in long course. In 2015 she’ll return to Kona gunning for that elusive win: She also placed 3rd at Ironman Texas, and she’ll race the 70.3 Worlds in Austria and others worldwide.
