Multi-sport athlete and current long distance duathlon World Champion Emma Pooley launched her new website today as she looks ahead to her first race of the 2016 season.
Pooley is one of Great Britain’s most respected and successful road cyclists of the past decade, winning the UCI time trial world championship as well as 5 further cycling medals at Olympic, World Championship and Commonwealth level.
After achieving Commonwealth silver in both the road race and time trial in Glasgow 2014, Emma retired from cycling, turning her attention to triathlon and endurance events. Just one month later she won the Zofingen Powerman long-course duathlon World Championships, breaking the course record by 16 minutes.
Since then she’s added Alpe d’Huez, Embrunman and Zofingen World Champs again to her list of endurance victories.
There’s always been more to Emma than meets the eye. An exciting racer and daring climber…gritty, courageous and ballsy - the pocket racer with the biggest heart - but she’s also a trailblazer off the bike. Passionate, honest (sometimes too honest!), witty, with an infectious appetite for baking, human rights and equality, there’s a side to Emma that many don’t get to see.
That’s why we bring you her brand new website: www.emmapooley.net
Emma’s official site will be an information portal for everything you need to know about Emma Pooley, including accurate past results and accolades as well as her up and coming race calendars…you’ll never have to Wikipedia again!
Just like any modern day full time athlete, Emma’s partnerships will be promoted here, and the causes she is passionate about, whilst Emma’s latest news and blogs will bring you an insight in to her vigorous life.
“I know it’s a long time coming, but it’s so nice that it is finally here,” stated Emma. “I really hope everyone enjoys exploring the site, looking through the picture galleries and reading some of my blogs. It’s great to be able to have an official prominence online and I would like to thank Tracy Pinder and Limegreentangerine for doing a wonderful job. Happy browsing!”
