Sophie Coldwell is a force to reckon with over sprint distances and secured one of her greatest victories when she was crowned SLT Arena Games Rotterdam champion in 2021. Born in Kent but growing up in Nottingham, Sophie was introduced to triathlon by her mum, racing a local event in Clifton when she was just eight. It was the spark that ignited an incredible career with so much potential still to realise.

Sophie was a member of Charnwood Athletics Club and Nottingham Leander Swimming Club before moving to Loughborough. She graduated from Loughborough University with a degree in Sport and Exercise Science in 2017 and trains there full time under coach Adam Elliott.

A promising junior career saw Sophie collect numerous honours and high profile results including gold in the Junior Under-23 Mixed Relay in Edmonton in 2014 and sixth place at the Under-23 ITU World Championships in Cozumel in 2016. Sophie really hit the triathlon big time in 2017 with bronze in the Under-23 ITU World Championships in Rotterdam and a fourth-place finish in the senior ranks at the WTS race in Yokohama. She also came second to Jessica Learmonth in Kitzbuhel.

A sixth-place finish for Team England at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast was the perfect stepping stone for elite-level victory in Tiszaujvaros and Tartu before another World Cup win in 2019 in Cagliari. Sophie was crowned Mixed Relay champion as part of the British team that took gold in Nottingham as well as silver in Edmonton.

She has been a strong performer on the Super League circuit with two top ten Championship Series finishes under her belt, and really stepped it up a notch as she finished third at the SLT Arena Games London 2021 before taking the win three weeks later in Rotterdam.

Sophie is known as one of the sport’s strongest swimmers and has been a regular holder of Super League’s blue swim jersey. Sophie lives with her fiancee, professional ultra runner Tom Evans. She is a qualified nail technician and keeps chickens as well as looking after dogs.
