Libs, her journey to the world champs

Libs Matthews

An ex national hockey player, Libs picked up Triathlon halfway through the 2016 season and very quickly got hooked! She set her sights at the beginning of 2017 on qualifying for the Age Group World Champs in Rotterdam. Rather ambitious having been in the sport for all of 1 year. Training with Premier Tri she improved upon a fairly solid run base and got to work tackling the swim and bike disciplines. She qualified for the World Champs by winning her age group at Deva Triathlon and went on to race her first elite race at London Tri, prepping her nicely for the World Champs. In Rotterdam she smashed all her PB’s to bring home 8th in her age group and 2nd fastest Brit in her age group. A very good 2nd season racing.
