Athletes Women › Miriam Casillas Garcia
A two-time Olympian, Miriam Casillas Garcia was born in Badajoz on the Portuguese border in southwestern Spain. A junior cross-tri world champion in El Anillo, Midwestern Spain as far back as 2011, Casillas Garcia’s strong bike handling skills should be ideal for the tight Super League circuits. Now 30, Casillas Garcia is a consistent performer at the highest level, but had a particularly stellar 2014, becoming national duathlon and triathlon champion and taking silver in duathlon at world Under-23 level behind Australia’s Gillian Backhouse.
Two years later, Casillas Garcia was again crowned national senior champion over the standard distance beating Anna Godoy Contreras and Sara Perez Sala, and opening up a 2 ½ min gap by the end of the run.
Her Olympic Games experience consists of finishing 43rd in Rio in 2016 and improving to 21st last year in Tokyo. She also raced the third leg in the Spanish mixed team relay in Japan that finished 10th.
Also on her resume is a fifth place in the Under-23 World Championship in Chicago in 2015 and a string of top 10 results in World Cup races around the world.
After a career-best eighth place on the World Triathlon Championship Series last year in Yokohama, she has continued to impress in 2022, with 10th place finishes in Yokohama and Leeds, as well as a top five in the World Cup in Arzachena.
