#34 Taylor Knibb
At the start of the year, USA's Junior and U23 World Champion Taylor Knibb moved to Boulder, Colorado, to join an international training team for the first time. As the 2021 season start comes closer, she hopes that the environment will help her return to the World Triathlon Championship Series podium she hit at Edmonton 2017 and galvanise her huge ambition in triathlon.
#33 Kenji Nener
After making the switch from Team Australia to representing Japan, Kenji Nener has begun the next chapter in a career that has already seen him training with some of the best in the sport and coping with the disappointment of missing out on what could have been the race of his life. He reveals how he bounced back from that crash in Karlovy Vary and is setting his sights on Olympic qualification and the prospect of a home Games in Tokyo.
#32 Leo Bergere
After two world titles with the Mixed Relay squad, France's Leo Bergere also landed World Championship bronze in 2020, his first Series podium. He tells us how he is looking forward to the battle for Olympic berths between the deeply talented French set up, how the Grand Prix circuit has powered national success and why his love of the great outdoors has helped keep training interesting.
#31 Kevin McDowell
The USA's Kevin McDowell's triathlon journey has taken in some incredible highs and lows, none more so than his diagnosis with cancer shortly after a breakthrough year as a junior back in 2011. Now 10 years cancer-free, he eloquently and openly describes the impact of that time, his mental and physical struggle back to full fitness and how it all just may have delayed his peak at the right time ahead of his final push to reach the Tokyo Olympic Games.
