LIFE


EARLY LIFE

LACHIE KERIN WAS BORN ON THE NORTHERN BEACHES OF SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, THEN MOVED TO MELBOURNE NOT LONG AFTER. ALWAYS BEING AROUND THE OCEAN HIS LOVE FOR THE WATER GREW AND THROUGH SCHOOL HE DEVELOPED A LOVE FOR COMPETITION IN TEAM SPORTS AND INDIVIDUAL SPORTS. FROM A YOUNG AGE LACHIE HAS BEEN INSPIRED BY HIS GRANDPA, WHO WAS A PROFESSIONAL CYCLIST, TO COMPETE IN TRIATHLONS.

FIRST STEPS

LOCAL KIDS TRIATHLONS ARE WHERE LACHIE GOT A TASTE OF WHAT WOULD BE HIS FUTURE CAREER, CONTINUING ON, HE PARTICIPATED IN A FEW TRIATHLONS BETWEEN THE AGES OF NINE AND 13. LACHIE’S MOTHER BOUGHT HIM HIS FIRST ROAD BIKE, HE THEN JOINED HIS FIRST TEAM, ‘TRI-BAL’, AND WAS COACHED BY ANDY SLEEMAN IN HIS YOUNGER YEARS. THIS LEAD HIM TO TRAINING AS A JUNIOR ATHLETE FOR THE VICTORIAN STATE TEAM AND ITU JUNIOR RACING IN AUSTRALIA. 

AFTER RACING IN THE JUNIOR RANKS, LACHIE GOT HIS PROFESSIONAL LICENSE AT THE AGE OF 18 AND TRAVELLED THE GLOBE RACING SOME OF THE BEST ELITE TRIATHLETES IN THE WORLD. THE REST IS HISTORY. 

NOW

GROUNDED, DRIVEN AND INSPIRED ARE A FEW WORDS TO DESCRIBE THIS YOUNG TRIATHLETE.

CURRENTLY HOLDING MANY PODIUMS AND TOP FIVE’S WORLD-WIDE AND REACHING OVER 40 HALF-IRONMAN DISTANCES IN HIS LIFETIME HE IS MAKING THE MOVE INTO THE FULL IRONMAN DISTANCE.

LACHIE HAS AN ABILITY TO STOMP ON OTHER COMPETITORS ON THE BIKE LEG, WHICH MAKES HIS FEROCITY SO THRILLING TO WATCH. WITH THREE FULL IRON DISTANCES IN THE BANK THERE IS EXCITEMENT IN THE AIR TO WATCH THIS YOUNG ATHLETE MAKE HIS MARK ON THE INTERNATIONAL CIRCUIT. 

TOMORROW

LACHIE KERIN WOULD LIKE TO INSPIRE OTHERS TO FOLLOW THEIR DREAMS AND PARTICIPATE IN SPORT NO MATTER THE LEVEL. FOLLOWING ON, TO CONTINUE TO PUSH THE PHYSICAL BOUNDARIES IS SOMETHING HE IS STRIVING FOR.

THE ULTIMATE GOAL IS TO WIN IRONMAN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS IN KONA, HAWAII. IN ADDITION HE HAS HIS TARGETS SET ON CHALLENGE ROTH, IRONMAN AUSTRALIA AND IRONMAN FRANCE. THIS YOUNG PROFESSIONAL TRIATHLETE IS ONE TO BE RECKONED WITH.
