Taylor Spivey was a national champion in surf lifesaving before she found a love of triathlon that would become her career while studying in Florence, Italy. Spivey grew up in Redondo Beach, California, USA. She had sporting genes with her mother, Bonnie, who has been a pro triathlete working as a swim teacher while her father was an excellent cyclist and keen triathlon age grouper.

Spivey was swimming a lot from a young age and put aside interest in soccer and snowboarding to become a national champion in surf lifesaving. But it was while studying in Florence as part of a five-year architecture degree, Spivey began running and swimming with the Italian team and biking around Tuscany. She was also racing and posting impressive results, which prompted a coach to reach out to her parents.

As a collegiate national champion in triathlon, she was clearly a bright talent. In 2015 she went for the USAT development programme, having just recovered from a horrible bike crash that left her sidelined for two months and still struggling for a full range of motion in her knee even today.

Spivey ultimately broke out on her own and joined the squad of Paulo Sousa, who has been her coach through the most successful stage of her career. By 2017, Spivey was securing podiums on the World Cup and WTS circuit. In 2019 she finished fourth in the World Championship rankings and was a key part of the USA Mixed Relay team.

Spivey has been a regular on the Super League Triathlon circuit, and the super sprint distances have suited her race style. Her breakthrough result was in Mallorca in 2018 when she took the win with a superb all-around performance.

Spivey lives with her boyfriend, fellow professional triathlete Vincent Luis, in Girona, Spain, where the couple has built a house together which she has helped design using her architecture background.
