We catch up with the 2019 World Champion as she manages to remain upbeat despite the ongoing battles with Covid-induced chaos. As an athlete for whom preparation and organisation have been big parts of her success, the pervading uncertainty has proven hugely challenging but a handful of races back on the schedule have brought some much-needed focus back into life in Maryland, USA.

Katie Zaferes - Secreting Happiness

Read more
When I told Katie Zaferes that we don't talk too much about triathlon in our podcasts, she suggested that we may run out of things to discuss because she was pretty damn boring (her words) outside of triathlon.

I think we proved otherwise as we chat and chortle our way through this episode covering an array of topics from reading maps to terrible dance moves and all the things in between.

Please enjoy my wonderful chat with the woman who oozes happiness, Katie Zee!

The Triathlete Hour: ep. 16 - Katie Zaferes tries to get better every day

Read more
This week, we talk with Olympian, World Champion, and our current cover model, Katie Zaferes. Katie is featured on the front of our July/August magazine issue — which you can get on newsstands now. You can also become an Active Pass member to get a magazine subscription, exclusive content, partner discounts, training plans, two books, and more: https://www.triathlete.com/active-pass/#_active-pass

Katie was supposed to be on her way to the Olympics right now, but she talks to us about how she's adjusting and adapting this year, and how she's found some silver linings. She has advice for spending 24 hours/day with your significant other and training partner — and she tells us the story of how she was engaged to someone else when she met her husband (!).

Although she was a runner in college and a swimmer growing up, Katie took a leap into triathlon when she was invited to the US Olympic Training Center post-college. She had to overcome her fear of technical pack riding and work to get better every day—and it's paid off.

You can read more about how she and the other Olympians and Paralympians are using this extra year: https://www.triathlete.com/events/olympics/dreams-delayed-how-olympic-and-paralympic-hopefuls-are-making-the-most-of-this-extra-year/

This week’s conversation is with 2016 Olympian Katie Zaferes, the #1 ranked triathlete in the world.

Katie recently captured her first ITU World Triathlon Series title.

The world title is years in the making for Katie, who finished fifth in the ITU World Triathlon Series in 2015, fourth in 2016, third in 2017 and second in 2018. 

A native of Hampstead, Maryland, Katie began her career as a cross country and track and field athlete in high school.

Katie competed in track and field and cross country at Syracuse University, where she qualified for the NCAA Division 1 Championships in the 3,000 meter steeplechase.

Upon graduation in 2012, she entered USA Triathlon’s Collegiate Recruitment Program, which became the start of her professional triathlon career.

In recognition of Katie’s ascent, USA Triathlon named her its 2017 and 2018 "Women's Triathlete of the Year."

Katie now has her sights set on qualifying for the 2020 Olympic Games.

In this conversation we discuss how she’s approaching the upcoming Games differently than her first appearance in 2016 – getting the results she covets while still finding joy in what she’s doing.
