Event: Professional Triathlete Guest Talk
Date: March 6th, 2016
Speaker: Emily Sherrard
Website: http://www.emilysherrard.com/

Emily Sherrard’s Bio: Emily found her way to the sport of triathlon from running. Having been a competitive runner through college, she felt a void in her athletic life upon starting medical school, thus she began competing in triathlons. What started as an outlet quickly became a passion and Emily found much success at the age group level, winning the 2013 70.3 World Championship and finishing on the podium at the 2014 Ironman World Championship, in just her first Iron-distance race. Her achievements in the sport inspired her to move up to the professional level to compete against the best in the world. Having completed medical school, she is deferring her training as a physician for a brief period of time to compete as a professional in triathlon. Emily says that medicine is not a job, but a calling, and her future finish line will be with her patients. But, for now she is choosing to pursue her passion for competing at the highest level in triathlon.

Ray Campeau’s Bio:  Ray began his Triathlete career in 1981 when the sport was in it’s infancy and large organized competitive events were just beginning to take off.  A naturally competitive athlete, Ray started out doing Triathlons as a pastime and a way to keep fitness and stamina. His abilities as a strong swimmer and powerful runner were further enhanced when he realized he had developed the athletic engine to make a TT bike fly.  In 1994 with a change in his outlook and realization of the life-positive nature of his pastime, Ray started to train full-time and fell in love with the sport that changed his life.
