Terenzo Bozzone

Sport/discipline: Triathlon, non-drafting focused

About Terenzo: After closely missing out on the New Zealand Olympic team in 2008 Terenzo Bozzone made the shift to solely racing non-drafting events. He shares his time between New Zealand and Los Angeles. During High School he accumulated 22 National Titles in Triathlon, cycling, athletics and cross country. He has five World Championship titles, including two World Junior Duathlon and two World Junior Triathlon titles. He also won the Ironman® 70.3 World Champs in 2008. In 2010 he won five 70.3 / Half Ironman® events and finished second in every other event except for the Ironman Word Championships where he finished 20th. 2011 was a tough year for Terenzo as he struggled with an Achilles injury for most of the season. Terenzo is arguably one of the best triathletes in the World.
