Kathryn Harrison – Vice-Président

Kathryn a commencé triathlon en 2013, après avoir pratiqué l’aviron en compétition pendant 10 ans, décidant de mettre à contribution ses cuisses puissantes sur un vélo. Evidemment, le vélo est son atout principal, mais ayant surmonté sa peur de la natation en eau libre, elle est maintenant compétente dans les trois éléments de triathlon. Elle continue de motiver les membres de l’équipe lors de ses séances de Core/abdos les lundi soir. Ses objectifs pour 2017 sont de se concentrer sur q progresser en course à pied et peut-être s’attaquer à son premier triathlon longue distance…

Louise Waters

Coureuse de loisir ayant à son actif plusieurs semi-marathons et un marathon, Louise, qui cherchait un nouveau défi ainsi que le soutien et encouragement d’une équipe, a rejoint Expatriés en 2013.  Sa discipline préférée est la natation où elle est particulièrement attirée par la difficulté de la natation en mer*, mais elle adore également sortir de Paris avec son vélo (*climats exotiques préférablement).

Ayant fini son premier triathlon distance M en 2014, Louise a continué ses progrès et, en 2016, elle a fait son premier triathlon longue distance. L’un de ses objectifs de 2017 est de continuer à progresser en course à pied.

Competing in her first M distance in 2014, Louise has gradually built on this experience and in 2016 she completed her first L distance race. One of her goals for 2017 is to focus on improving the running.. (*exotic climates preferable).

 

 

 

Caroline Mehigan

Caroline joined the club in September 2015. A runner at heart and new to Paris, she joined the club as they looked like a fun group of people and decided to give the swimming and cycling a “tri” too. A social cyclist and a holiday swimmer she had a lot to learn in the pool and on the bike. Two years later, she has been convinced that combining the sports is more fun! The mix of training is great, especially training at Cergy and discovering the Brick sessions. In 2017 Caroline decided the L distance is her favourite and cycling holidays are the way forward! In the 2018 season she hopes to improve on the bike and take more cycling trips to discover France.

Virgile Rangeard

Virgile a commencé le triathlon et les sports d’endurance en général en 2015, après des années de handball, football américain et rugby. Malgré la rapide prise de conscience du fait que peser plus de 90 kilos ne sert dans aucune des 3 disciplines, il a adoré participer au semi-ironman d’Aix et à 5 autres triathlon olympiques, mais surtout, s’est éclaté pendant les sessions d’entrainement avec les Expats.
