It's tough when one of your future rivals just happens to be Olympian Hollie Avil, but that certainly hasn't put Sophie Coleman off!

Last year she won the junior race at the London Triathlon by a country mile. She then went on to win, in impressive style, the World Junior Duathlon Championships in Rimini. Her swim made need a little bit of work, but that seems to be going well after a tough winter's training and the 2009 season has already kicked off to a great start. In January, at the Youth Olympic Festival in Australia, Sophie posted the fastest run split of the day and in doing so won Great Britain a silver medal.

Sophie's website is one of the most impressive athletes sites we've seen; it's exceptionally well presented, up-to-date and informative. You can also find out more, and see some examples of her artwork, as Sophie is combining triathlon with a part-time art foundation course at a college in Eastbourne.
