World class triathlete Paula Findlay made her Olympic debut at the London 2012 Olympic Games, finishing 52nd overall.
The Edmonton native charged onto the international triathlon scene in 2010 at historic Hyde Park in London, U.K., the same course used for the London Games, and became the first Canadian triathlete to win a World Championship Series event and the only woman to win back-to-back in 2010.
In 2011, her pre-Olympic season, she claimed gold medals in World Championship Series events in Australia, Austria and Spain.
With background as a swimmer, Findlay has been competing since the age of 10. She added running to her skill set during high school and soon entered her first triathlon. She made the national junior squad in 2007 and finished third at the Under-23 World Championships in 2009.
Findlay lives and trains in Victoria BC.
