It’s a format, discipline – in many cases, a lifestyle – that has captured the heart of Great Britain’s Caroline Livesey in recent years. From podium finishes in Pro IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 races, Caroline has been drawn to the world of XTRI, experiencing one of the most epic moments of her sporting life in 2019, when winning the Canadaman Xtreme Triathlonin a sprint finish!
