Mirinda ‘Rinny’ Carfrae
About Mirinda: "Rinny" grew up in Brizvegas, in Australia, loving all team sports, especially basketball. But she fell in love with triathlon when she first found out about it in 2000. She started racing professionally in 2003, but really didn’t consider herself as a pro until around 2005 when she started racing non-drafting events in the United States. Some may find it interesting that she practiced Kung Fu for 5 years and was an extra in one of Jackie Chan’s movies, ‘First Strike.’
