10 Questions with Anna Cleaver

Sports Background before triathlons?

Swimmer for NZ. When I was about 13 I had to choose between Netball (editor's note: netball is similar to basketball but there is no dribbling, pretty big in OZ and NZ) and Swimming. Very glad I chose swimming.

Pre-race ritual?

I have a cup of tea! Creamed rice and banana for fuel and High5 energy source to sip on. Laugh, smile, relax.

Strange place you bodyglide?

I rarely use bodyglide. The Champ Sys suits don't chafe :)

What are the two most played songs on your ipod?

Its on shuffle so I'm not sure it counts… But I Gotta Feelin' and Viva la Viva (Coldplay).

What do you crave when you are bonking?

Cold coke. Then I think about having eggs once I get home.

How many #2's pre-race?

Depends on how many bathrooms I can find pre race!

What is an obscure website you visit?

There aren't any, sorry to be boring! I might look at some finance news sites when my brain needs a switch from triathlon.

What's in your special needs bag?

Any race that offers a special needs bag is a race that is too long for me to enter!

Team Macca or Team Crowie?

I'll sit on the fence. Both are triathletes and clever businessmen.

What's your ride?
Argon18 E114 for non drafting and Argon18 Gallium Pro for drafting races. Wheels FFWD, helmet Louis Garneau

*I met Anna while living and training in Sydney during my sabbatical last year. She really extended herself and made me feel welcomed during our group rides. She is so humble, she never led on as to how fast she really is, I thought she was just a fast age-grouper. Well, she just quit her full-time job and will be taking America by storm this summer. You can follow Anna on her website:
