Boulder, CA. The best coaching story this summer! D3 Multisport, Inc., a world-class triathlon coaching company, welcomes Olympic triathlon winner Susan Williams to its coaching team.
D3 owner and Heach coach Mike Richie shared: “It’s important for D3 coaches to be passionate about the sport and have the highest level of commitment to helping athletes achieve their goals. And Susan’s passion and commitment are second to none! Her wealth of knowledge makes our coaching team stronger, and it will bring to our organization a unique perspective from racing at the highest level of sport. ”
In 2004, Susan became the first American triathlete to win an Olympic medal, winning bronze at the Athens Olympics. She was also inducted into the U.S. Triathlon Hall of Fame in 2015 and was named USOC Athlete of the Year in June 2005. Throughout her career in racing she has received additional awards and prizes. She is very proud of her Olympic achievement, and this success has shaped her coaching philosophy.
