Why Choose Matt Trautman Triathlon

I am a professional triathlete and coach based in Cape Town, South Africa. A former professional yachtsman, I took up the sport of triathlon late in life but quickly went on to excel.

After two years of racing as an age grouper, I turned professional in 2014. I have since won 14 Half Ironman Distance races including 4 victories at Ironman 70.3 South Africa. I am a two time Ironman Wales champion and winner of the 2019 European Long Distance Champs in course record time.

As a late starter to the sport of triathlon, I understand the struggle of coming into the sport with no previous experience. And as a top performing professional I have a firm grasp of what it takes to compete at a high level. As I have learnt over the years, whether it’s in sailing, kayaking or triathlon; the formula for success is very similar, it comes down to the practicality of getting the job done. It’s no coincidence then that my beliefs align very well with the Trisutto coaching methodologies. As a coach I aim to help get the most out of yourself as an athlete no matter your goals or ambitions.
