Louise is a keen and accomplished triathlete, and has competed in the World and European Triathlon Championships in her age-group for Team GB.
Louise’s interest in triathlons began after an Olympic-inspired contest back in 2012 when the BBC Breakfast presenters were challenged to a cycling competition around the Velodrome at the National Cycling Centre in Manchester.
When a friend suggested she might enjoy triathlon, Louise signed herself up and hasn’t looked back. She completed her first triathlon in June 2012 and in 2015 she qualified in her age-group to be part of the Team-GB Standard Distance Triathlon Team.
She competed in the World Triathlon Championships in Chicago in 2015 and the European Triathlon Championships in Lisbon in 2016.
