2x Long Distance, Asia & Europe Champion
2x Long Distance, Asia & Europe Champion

Caroline Steffen is known as “Xena the Warrior Princess”. Her natural talent, strong work ethic, and willingness to “go to war” in a race have resulted in an array of championship titles in long-course triathlon over her career: 2x ITU Long-Distance Champion, 2x silver at the Ironman World Championship, 2x Ironman Asia-Pacific Champion, 2x Ironman European Champion, and Challenge Roth Champion.

Caroline started in sport with 10 years as a member of the Swiss national swimming team both in junior and open competition. After a shoulder surgery, she retired from competitive swimming. It was then she encountered multisport, and after completing a few Olympic-distance triathlons she did her first ironman in under 10 hours and won her age group, qualifying her for Kona.

She concentrated on cycling and represented Switzerland on the national team, but gravitated back toward triathlon as it provided her more satisfaction as a competitor. She went professional and quickly racked up success in 70.3 and Ironman racing. She has consistently been on the podium and is always one to watch in any race.
