The fight of the underdog | Pro triathlete Emma Pallant

Taren Gesell

Emma Pallant is a British pro-triathlete who first made her mark as a track athlete, winning British Universities Championships and European Cross Country Championships (to name a couple.)  She took up triathlon in 2012 and started winning both triathlons and duathlons, becoming the World Duathlon champ in 2015. With her focus shifted strictly to triathlon, Emma had a strong year in 2017, picking up 2nd place in the 70.3 World Championship, and in 2018 winning in Mallorca, Barcelona and Staffordshire.

On this episode of the Triathlon Taren podcast, we talk to Emma about why she sees herself as an underdog, why she's always chasing from behind after the swim, and her hopes for Kona!
