Sarah True Conversation

A conversation with Sarah True. Sarah is a two-time Olympian, winner of multiple triathlon World Series races and three-time World Championship medalist. She finished fourth at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, just 10 seconds off the podium. We talked about how she got into triathlon, how she balances training for three sports, overcoming injuries, the differences between open-water and pool swimming, what it’s like to finish fourth at the Olympics, her transition to the 70.3 distance, making a living as a triathlete, politics in sport, closing the gender gap in sport, and her sister, novelist Lauren Groff.
