Emma-Kate Lidbury

Emma-Kate Lidbury, a Boulder-based Brit, discovered the sport of triathlon while working as a journalist in 2005 (her paper, Oxford Mail and Times, wanted a reporter to do the event it was sponsoring). It was love at first race. Since earning her first professional title in 2011, Lidbury has become a podium regular on the IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 circuits, with a collection of IRONMAN 70.3 wins and two top-ten finishes in the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship.
