Kirsten Sass is fast. The West Tennessee age group triathlete turned in a time at the 2016 ITU Long Course World Championships that would have beaten the 10th-place pro. Her triathlon career had humble beginnings–a 3-hour Olympic distance race on an ill-fitting bike borrowed from her triathlete dad.
Since 2009, Kirsten been a force to be reckoned with on the ITU circuit. She’s been to numerous U.S. and World Championships in several distances. After an age-group win at Ironman Lousiville 2016, she’s also heading to Kona for the third time later in 2017.
With two kids and a full-time job, she’s very adept at balancing a high-performance triathlon career while keeping family first. Outside triathlon, she is also active on the bike racing circuit in West Tennessee.
