Athlete in Profile: Lincoln Stephen

Joining our supporting membership and getting some mentoring from Coach Sarah, Lincoln has ambitious goals and is looking to find the missing piece to his puzzle. He is passionate about triathlon and sport in general as well as health and the human body and is keen for racing to return like the rest of us !

Name: Lincoln Stephen

Nickname: I’ve had many but a long standing one is Stinkin‘. it just rhymes. :-p

Age / Age Group: 35-39

Lives: Bendigo, Vic

Targeted Sport: Triathlon

Years in the Sport: 12

How did you get started: A work friend asked if I wanted to do the Melbourne Corporate Tri in 2009 because one of his team members pulled out. It was love at first tri !

Why I choose CPC: I met coach Sarah in 2009 when I started my first full triathlon season in Melbourne. I had entered the full Gatorade series and got a 6-week try out with Tri-Alliance who Sarah was with. I’ve been aware of things she’s done in coaching and racing since then and really love her philosophies and attitude. I’m keen to be a part of a triathlon community more than I have been and connect with other like-minded people.

What I ‘get’ from my sport: Sport has been the one constant in my life since I was very young. I have played many different sports with Hockey being my number one sport of choice for many years prior to triathlon. Sport and competition gives me great joy and purpose as I aim to be my best whenever I am competing. I love pursuing a competitive goal and the structure that training for it can provide me in life. Feeling great in life always involves consistent and productive training.

Ultimate Goal:  Ultimate goal is to race as a professional triathlete but I’m a fair way off that. However, I will first aim to win my age group in a half ironman event. When I can get everything to click on race day, I thing I have a big shot.

What I couldn’t live without: Not including my wife and kids, it would be sport.

Biggest love: Not including my wife and kids, it would be sport as well. ;-p

Pet peeve!: Drafting in a non-drafting race.

Interesting fact about me: Raced at the 2014 Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Mont-Tremblant, Canada. It didn’t go well…
