Athlete of the Month , Apr '17

Chris Berg Coached by Leigh Dodd, USA Triathlon Certified Coach

Super Multi-sporter! When your time is split between two different types of 'multisport' events, managing training time can be tricky. But, Coach Leigh and our Athlete of the Month, Chris Berg, have found a good balance to utilizing his training time to prepare Chris for both triathlon and biathlon.

Meet Team D3

Athletes who are coached through any of our three coaching options are considered members of Team D3. They share in the camaraderie and benefits of a diverse, passionate group of athletes. Team D3 athletes range in ability from beginner to elite, and they train in home towns that span between Canton of Vaud, Switzerland - to - Boulder, Colorado - to - San Diego, California. Beyond our coaching, we use a mix of technology, events, and of course, racing to bring athletes together. We recognize and celebrate these athletes below.

What an incredible IM debut for Mateus! A solid swim followed by patience and consistency on the bike. Then, despite his watch glitching out, he threw down a well-paced and incredibly strong run to finish up the day. That's how you do it! Congratulations, Mateus, YOU ARE AN IRONMAN!!!

Notes from Coach Brad Seng

Rolled his ankle a few days before the race while doing a run on the streets of Florinapolis. Freak accident where landscapers were blowing grass clippings and a small rock was blown into his path which he stepped on and caused his ankle to roll. Solid swim & bike combo, but had to walk the majority of the run. Proud of Boris' effort to gut it out and get to the finish line!

Notes from Coach Brad Seng

Strong performance with a PB and Kona slot! Limited to two gear ratios on the bike due mechanical and still managed a steady ride. Had the fastest run split which propelled him to the top of his AG podium! Great example of how to stay calm in the midst of a major mechanical on the bike and put mental energy on the two things he could control - attitude & effort. Great race Steve!

Great race on IM training for Julie. She was able to buck up and get it done with a tired mind and body. Definitely one of those "I'll give it my best shot, but I'm not sure what's going to happen today" type efforts. So, great effort and mental toughness shown today.

Dave had a break through on the run at Santa Rosa and his mental toughness was at an all-time high. While the overall goal time went out the window with a windier than expected bike, he rallied on the run to have his first sub 2:00 run. A lot of hard work went into that PR and next time around he'll go even faster. He's on the right trajectory and breaking 5:15 is next on the list!
