This week's interviewee is the world #3, Sam Warriner. Surprisingly, Sam didn't take up triathlon seriously until her early 30s, and now, at 37 years-old, she's just coming into her prime. What a great advertisement for women looking to take up sport in their thirties!

Her 2008 season kicked of with some great World Cup performances including victory in Korea and several other World Cup podium finishes. At the World Championships in Vancouver, an amazing battle to the line (see picture above) saw her take the bronze medal behind Helen Tucker and Sarah Haskins.

The former Brit, who now races for and lives in New Zealand, has a great attitude towards training and racing and remains as focused and disciplined as ever in her quest to be the very best. In her interview with Annie Emmerson, see the video below, she talks about overcoming her disappointing 16th place at the Olympics and gives tips on how to go from age-group level to being one of the best elite athletes in the world. She also talks about linking up with her new coach, the former World Champion, Siri Lindley, and ponders over her two last World Cup races this season, which if all goes well, could see her finish off the year as the world #1.
