DC Triathlon Club

Connor Williams

January, 2019
Connor got his start in triathlon in 2014 after joining his college triathlon club as a way to meet people. As a high school swimmer and runner, triathlon was something he always wanted to try, and this was the perfect way to get started. Within a year from starting, Connor was competitive within the Mid East Collegiate Conference and had grown into a leadership role within his own club. His favorite part of triathlon was the awesome friends he made on his college team. After graduation, he missed the camaraderie that came with being on a team, which is what drew him toward the DC Tri Club! 2019 is the first year Connor is part of the Elite Team Program.
