In this Episode
This week on the show Alyssa and Haley chat with rookie professional triathlete Clarice Lorenzini. Clarice qualified for her pro card at Ironman Florida in 2020 and raced her first race as a professional at Ironman Tulsa this spring. After a not-so-perfect start to the race, she tells us how she dug deep to get through the tough bike course and run her way through the field to an impressive 11th place finish.
Clarice identifies as Filipino-American, and is just the second ever female professional that is Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI). She speaks about how her upbringing influenced her training and pursuit of professional triathlon, and tells us why it is important to her to use her platform to be a role model for young girls in the AIPI community. Clarice also gives suggestions on how we can be better allies to support the AAPI community, both in sport and in our broader communities.
Clarice lives in Virginia Beach, and will be racing Rev 3 Williamsburg this coming weekend. She gives us her local scoop on not just the race course, but also her favorite spots to visit, shop, and grab a sandwich in Williamsburg.
Haley and Alyssa will both be racing Ironman Coeur D’Alene this Sunday! Cheer them on and check out all of the action on Facebook live AND be sure to check out our Instagram page, as our Feisty Community Innovator Jamila will be on the ground in CDA watching all the action unfold.
