Nikki Butterfield

This soft spoken, charming girl from Brisbane Australia earned her first World Championship title at the Under-23 Triathlon World Championship in 2003. In 2005, she added the title of Australian Long Course Champion to her resume, before shifting gears to focus on professional cycling.  However,   Nikki’s proudest accomplishment to date is most certainly the title of “Mum”, having given birth to daughter Savana Rose on December 22, 2010. Never one to sit idle, Nikki completed her MBA in finance one month prior to Savana’s arrival, then five short months after giving birth she returned to the professional triathlon ranks. Her comeback was highlighted with a win at the 2011 Ironman 70.3 Syracuse, and in early 2012 she battled to a brilliant victory at the Abu Dhabi International Triathlon, laying down blistering bike and run splits against what was arguably the strongest women’s long-course field ever assembled outside of the Ironman World Championships in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.
