Athletes Women › Carolina Routier
One of the fastest swimmers in the sport, Carolina Routier has come a long way in triathlon since not even owning a bike a decade ago. Carolina was born in Banyoles, Catalonia, Spain, and eased her way into the sport through aquathlon, which combined her childhood passions of swimming and running. However, she didn’t own a bike, and hadn’t considered cycling seriously until the thought of triathlon came into her head. Within a few months she not only had her first bike but was proving a natural when it came to adding a third discipline to her competition, taking part in her first local races in 2010.
It didn’t take long for success to arrive. In 2011, Carolina was tearing up the domestic scene, being crowned Spanish Under-23 Champion over the Olympic distance, Elite sprint champion and Spanish Aquathlon Champion at both under-23 and elite level.
The switch to the pro ranks in triathlon was also a smooth one as in 2012 Carolina picked up wins at the Larache ITU Sprint African Cup and Vina del Mar ITU Pan American Cup. Consistent results on the WTS and World Cup circuits saw Carolina earn selection for Spain for the 2016 Rio Olympics.
In 2018, Carolina was involved in an accident when she was hit by a car on a training ride in Banyoles and ended up in hospital with multiple fractures. She has since battled back and returned to the world stage, including an appearance at Super League Triathlon Jersey in 2019, where she finished ninth.
Carolina studied for a Communication degree. She is the fiancee of fellow Spanish triathlete Mario Mola.
