Linnea Humphrey

Linnea began doing triathlon in 1992 and did her first Ironman in 1999.  Now at the age of 44 and after almost 20 years in the sport this Toronto area resident has completed 17 Ironman races and countless others at various distances.  Despite the many years in the sport, Linnea keeps getting faster and is matching or bettering times she did over a decade ago. 

 
Her fabulous result at Ironman Brazil this year and her positive outlook and ability to always find a way to DO MORE certainly says something about her ability her ability to stay healthy.  Linnea started training for Brazil in mid January on her bike trainer and the treadmill, usually in cramped quarters at the spin studio or the gym combined with a couple of warm weather cycling camps down south.  With the help of 7SYSTEMS she managed to stay injury and sickness free the entire winter and spring and hit the starting line ready to go.  This solid block of un-interupted training paid off with a 10:16 finish at IM Brazil, which put her 12th female overall and 5th female amateur.
