Paula Findlay

Sport/discipline: Triathlon, Olympic Distance

About Paula: My first year racing on the World Cup circuit and having any kind of sponsorship was in 2010. I’m currently three years into my Biological Science degree at the University of Alberta and I hope to go into medicine after I’m done this triathlon thing.

Hometown: Edmonton, AB, Canada

Current residence: Victoria, BC, Canada

SRAM® products used: SRAM RED group set

Zipp® products used: Zipp 101s for training and Zipp 303 Firecrest® for racing.

Favorite SRAM product and why: SRAM RED.

Favorite Zipp product and why: 303 Firecrest wheels. They’re fast, light and good for cornering on technical ITU courses.

Do you train with a SRAM-Quarq power meter? Yes, I love it.

What is one surprising or helpful thing you learned about yourself from training and/or racing with power? It’s always surprising to see how much the power varies in an ITU race. With attacks off the front pack and chasing out of corners, my power is constantly changing.

You’re stranded on a desert island and you have to choose one of each of the following:

One album? Sam McGlone’s iPod

One candy? Chocolate

One vice? iPhone
