Paula Findlay

Paula Findlay is young triathlete with an impressive list of accomplishments. This year alone she has won three World championship series races consecutively, one each in Sydney, Kitzbuhel and Madrid and took a third at the Mooloolaba World Cup. Now she has chosen 7SYSTEMS to help her in her prep for the Olympics!

Paula started swimming when she was 10 years old and during high school, at age 15 she started to run. In 2006 Paula began her first competitive season and competed at the World Junior Championships. She then made Canada’s Junior squad in 2007 and 2008. In 2008 she won both the junior and senior national championships. Her next big accomplishment was a third at the Under-23 world championships in 2009.

Not only was she the first Canadian triathlete to win a World Championship series event but she was also the only women to win back-to-back in 2010.

If you don’t know her now, you will. She will no doubt continue to impress leading up to to London for the 2012 Olympic Summer Games.

When Paula is not training she is studying at the University of Alberta where her goal is to be accepted to medicine and become a doctor.
