This month, we interview Sam Courts, the talented young cross triathlete.
My greatest achievements so far, include my two cross triathlon world championship events that took place in 2017 and 2018, where I finished 5th and 7th respectively. The first event was in Canada and the second in Denmark, where I competed against a growing group of top athletes from all over the world. There is no experience quite like competing for your country. To top off a great last season, I won the trophy for Western Province athlete of the year.
In 2019 I will be moving out of the junior category and facing professional athletes from the senior and elite divisions. I would like to be selected for the RSA squad, but there will be a lot more competition, but I look forward to the challenge.
I chose MiFitLife Cover because they provide great support to athletes, and they sponsor many of the events that I compete in.
I don't have just one favourite event. I race in cross triathlon, however biathlon is another fun multisport discipline. I love cross triathlon because I love spending time on the trails. Especially the technical and wild single tracks. Biathlon on the other hand is the complete opposite, it is an intense and short sprint.
I do not have any pets, instead I have four bikes and the one is named Charlie.
