Emma recently released her autobiography “Hard Wired Life, Death and Triathlon”. It's a book that I recommend for the bookshelf of every endurance sports enthusiast, and particularly every triathlon lover. Growing up as a triathlete in the 90s Emma Carney was certainly a name and a presence gracing the covers of triathlon magazines, TV screens wherever the triathlon enthusiast looked.

Emma came from a junior running / athletics background, where she represented Australia twice at the world cross country championships in 1994 and 1995, and then again in the Ekiden Relay in 1993 and 1994.  You'll hear today how Emma turned to the sport of triathlon and in just 18 months took out the 1994 world ITU international triathlon union championship in Auckland by a record margin at that stage of 2 minutes and 12 seconds.

Following that very impressive international debut taking out a world title, Emma recorded seven ITU World Cup wins in 1996 and collectively across her career 19 World Cup wins. From June 1995 to April 1997, Emma recorded an unbroken string of 12 straight ITU World Cup wins. Emma was the World Cup champion in 1995, 1996 and 1997. And of course the ITU now World Triathlon world champion in 1994 and then again in 1997. Subsequently, Emma was inducted into the Australian sporting Hall of Fame in 2016.

On this featured performer episode, you'll hear Emma truly share around the highs, the lows and the learnings from what was a remarkable career and a remarkable chapter in Australian triathlon and World Triathlon history. Emma shares on the early days her rules of competition training philosophies, and now as her attention turns to coaching up and coming triathlon talent, her ambitions to see Australia secure Olympic Gold with her podium project and the burning reason behind that.  You'll hear me touch on the controversial 2000 Olympic triathlon Australia team selection snub of which you'll also be able to read the full documented history in hardwired life death and travel and Emma's recently released autobiography. This really is an episode that epitomizes the highs lows and learnings.
