Zoot Sports welcomes 70.3 Champion Paula Findlay to their roster
February 20, 2020
Carlsbad, CA – Zoot Sports, the industry leader in triathlon apparel, is proud to welcome world class triathlete Paula Findlay, into its Elite roster of professional triathletes. The multi-year partnership will have Findlay training and racing in Zoot Apparel, Wetsuits and Swimskins.
Findlay exploded on the international scene in 2010 as a 21 year-old when she won five ITU World Championship series races in a row over the span of two seasons, a feat no woman in history had achieved. She competed in London at the 2012 Olympic Games and at the 2015 Pan American games for Canada.
“Paula is an inspirational figure who fits perfectly with Zoot’s mission and goals. She is a role model who is passionate about life and the sport of triathlon.” said Shawn O’Shea, President, Zoot Sports.
In 2017, in search of a fresh challenge, Paula decided to test her fitness on the long-course side of the sport. The longer distance and the non-drafting bike leg were both factors that played to her strengths. In May 2018, in only her 3rd 70.3 ever, she won the North American Pro Championships in St George, Utah, solidifying her ranks amongst the best long course triathletes in the world. Findlay closed out the 2019 season with wins at IRONMAN 70.3 La Quinta and Challenge Daytona.
“I’m really proud to be joining the Zoot family this year. As one of the original triathlon brands, they really stand out as a passionate, close-knit company who put so much good energy into the sport. I’m excited to have their entire team supporting me this season and can’t wait to rock the Zoot brand in training and on the race course!”
