Professional Profile

Hamilton-born professional triathlete Keegan Williams, 3, is profiled by online triathlon magazine Slowtwitch. Perhaps the best sign Williams might yet follow in the footsteps of legendary New Zealand ironman Cameron Brown was his 21 marathon at Copenhagen where he placed second a world class 2:46 accompanied by a well balanced 51 minute swim and 4:32 bike. To back that up, he also posted a third at Challenge Wanaka 21, and fourth place at Ironman New Zealand and the full distance Revolution3 at Cedar Point. “[My first triathlon success was] Challenge Wanaka in 28 [where I] ended up 5th and wasn’t too far behind the leaders,” Williams says. “I knew then that I could possibly make it in the sport. I am still in the process of making a living at it, as I still work part time as structural engineer, but I am hoping in the near future to dedicate myself full time to training and racing.”
