About Virginia: Virginia said she feels professional since she started with triathlon in 1991, but she has been what is “considered” professional since 1996. Before, she was a swimmer and runner at school. When Virginia was 12 she asked for a racing bike for her birthdayt. She loved to swim, bike and run before doing it all together!
