Kristin Liepold

Kristin Liepold continues to hold her own at the highest level in professional triathlon as she now juggles her career on the course with being a mother.

Kristin gave birth to daughter Mira on May 25, 2018, but by 2019 she was very much back at the business end of triathlon competition.

She finished second at IRONMAN Tallinn and also notched top-10 finishes over the full distance in Australia and New Zealand as well as coming in a creditable 17th at the World Championship in Kona.

To add to those results Kristin also performed well in 70.3 events, taking fifth in St Polten and seventh in South Africa.

Liepold’s love affair with triathlon began back in 2007, and by 2008 she was competing in Olympic-distance events.

The story for Kristin had all started at university while volunteering at a local triathlon, when she bet a friend that she would be back the following year to compete. She realised pretty quickly that there may be a career in the sport for her.

She became German Duathlon Champion in 2009 and was third in the 70.3 European Championship in Wiesbaden in 2010.

Kristin’s arrival on the biggest stage professionally really came in 2011 when she notched full-distance successes at the UK event (in a course-record time with an incredible 2:41:57 marathon) and also in Wales. Further victories over the full distance followed at Lanzarote in 2013 and Kalmar in 2016 together with a 70.3 success in Italy (2013).

That UK success in 2011 also saw Liepold produce the best run split of all time in a full-distance event – a marathon in 2:41:57.

Kristin also showed she could hold her own in what is seen by many as the most testing event of all, being the highest-placed German (16th) at the World Championship in Kona in 2013.

Liepold relishes hot competition on the triathlon course, and clearly doesn’t mind soaring temperatures off it either as a fan of chili peppers and ginger!
