AP10 is very excited to announce that Debi Hazelden is the newest member of our coaching team. Sydney-based Debi brings a wealth of coaching, racing and endurance sport experience, further strengthening the accomplished AP10 coaching group (despite being a Kiwi!).
Debi loves to share her passion for triathlon as a means of motivating and guiding people to reach their triathlon goals. Through her involvement in Can Too, a non-profit training and fundraising program in support of Cure Cancer Australia, Debi helps beginners develop the skills and fitness to complete their first triathlon events. At the other end of the scale, Debi also works with athletes who are seeking to excel at ironman distance triathlon, and has successfully coached athletes to qualify for the Ironman World Championships held in Kona each year.
There is no shortage of racing success in Debi’s triathlon repertoire. Her 10:18 at the 2014 Cairns Ironman placed 2nd in her age group, 5th age grouper overall, and earned her a place at the 2014 Ironman World Championships. Debi is the 3rd woman in the world to complete a cycle Everesting, climbing Watsons Bay Hill in Sydney 162 times hours in a single 18-hour ride for a total elevation of 8848 metres – the height of Mt Everest. Crazy Kiwi! We’re look forward to Debi’s performance in the first Ultraman Oz to be held in May 2015. Along with AP10 athletes Kellie and Lauren, Debi will be undertaking 10km swim, 420km bike and 84km run. Crazy Kiwi!
Debi’s coaching approach fits the AP10 ethos perfectly. Extensive experience with swim squad coaching, one on one stroke correction sessions, ocean water swim sessions, cycle strength and interval sessions, dedication to technique – a match made in heaven!
At AP10 we are passionate about ongoing professional development for our coaches. Our open-forum approach within the coaching team means that all coaches can benefit from the combined depth of experience in racing, coaching and formal education. This is great for our coaches but those who ultimately benefit are our athletes – so we are hugely excited about Debi’s contribution to this group and to AP10 as a whole.
