Nick Klonne

Nicholas Klonne, an Ironman, hails from Rockford, MN. Along with his Ironman, he's done many other triathlons. Nick started building up to completing an Ironman when he was just 15 years old, when he competed in a kids' triathlon and nearly drown in a 200 m swim in 4 ft deep water. Since then, however, he has been working hard at triathlon, hard enough to be able to complete an Ironman. When he's not training for Ironman races, you might find Nick playing sudoku, tanning in the moonlight, or dating really old women. However, he probably has a 20 hour training week to prep for Ironman, so these other activities are unlikely. Follow him on Instagram @nickrunstoomuch

Nicolas Rodriguez Jeangros

I am a Colombian amateur triathlete, I have been doing this since 2010. I suck at swimming, I am a decent biker, and kind of a decent runner. I have done several sprint and olympics, and a couple halves.

Tess Weathers

Tess has been competing in triathlons since 2009 when she got her start with the UC Davis Triathlon Team. She founded the Mines Triathlon Team in 2011 while getting her PhD. She is now a researcher at UC Santa Cruz, where she is balancing her work with riding a lot of bikes, occasionally running, and actively considering surfing as swim practice. Even from afar she is still supporting the team as a long-term Mascot and can't wait to see the team grow and kick ass in the collegiate circuit.
