Kretschman Multisport, LLC
  Triathlon and Sports Nutrition Coaching 
Claudia Kretschman began her triathlon career in 1987, competing in a small town race on a steel-framed bike and a borrowed helmet.  She placed 3rd in her age group and never looked back.  During the following decades Claudia competed in dozens of races, from sprint distance all the way to full Ironmans, and with some marathons, road races and cycling time trials sprinkled in as well.  

Claudia has been a top 15 Pro finisher twice, & an age group podium finisher three times, at the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii. She was also a U.S.Triathlon All-American several times, and represented Team USA at the Long Course World Championship in 2011.

After completing 24 full Ironman races, including qualifying for the Hawaii Ironman 13 times, she suffered a horrific bike crash, just weeks before she was to compete in Hawaii for the13th time in 2014.  The crash left her with a shattered C1 vertebra, and major cervical fusion surgery, which severely limited her range of motion, & required major bike fit adjustments.
Miraculously, there was no paralysis.
Since then, she has made a major comeback; finishing on the podium (3rd place in the 55-59 age group) at Ironman Mont Tremblant, in 2017, as well as placing in several 70.3 races.
In December of 2017, Claudia underwent another major spinal surgery, fusing the entire lumbar vertebrae. Since the pounding of running is not medically recommended, she has moved over to Aquabike racing, & is consistently on the podium in her division.
There is a special place in her coaching heart, for athletes who have experienced injuries, or setbacks due to unexpected trauma or chronic problems.
Claudia has an absolute "never give up, nothing is impossible, follow ALL of your dreams attitude", that is nothing less than infectious!  Just ask any of her clients.
