Sophie Coldwell is one of the world’s leading triathletes, consistently on the podium in World Series races and already a Super League Triathlon Arena Games champion having won in Rotterdam 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 what is evolving into an incredible career.

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, where she still trains full time under coach Adam Elliott.

A promising junior career saw Sophie collect numerous honours including gold in the Junior Under-23 Mixed Relay in Edmonton in 2014, sixth place at the Under-23 World Championships in Cozumel in 2016, and then third in 2017 in Rotterdam.

Yet her results in the senior ranks have been more impressive. In 2017, they included a fourth place in the World Triathlon Series in Yokohama, and a runner-up spot to Jess Learmonth in the European Championship in Kitzbuhel.

A sixth-place finish for Team England at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast led to a first World Cup win in Hungary and being crowned European champion over the sprint distance in Estonia.

Another World Cup win in 2019 in Cagliari, was followed by mixed relay success in Nottingham before finishing the season with a ninth place in the Tokyo Olympic test event and 13 th at the World Triathlon Grand Final in Lausanne.

With 2021 lost to racing due the pandemic, Coldwell hasn’t finished outside of the top seven since. Podiums on the WTCS circuit have flowed at Leeds twice and Abu Dhabi – where she clinched a Commonwealth Games spot. Competing for England in Birmingham this July she narrowly missed a medal in the individual race, but made up for it with gold in the mixed team relay.

She has also been a strong performer on the Super League circuit with two top five 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 fiancé, professional ultra runner Tom Evans. She is a qualified nail technician and keeps rescue chickens as well as looking after dogs.
