Why Miss Multisport?
Miss Multisport was started to provide a supportive community to all women wanting to use multisport as a way to incorporate health and fitness into their lives. We are for all women out there who want to not only swim, bike or run for fitness but who want to be part of an empowering community of women. Women’s fitness is not only a way to be happy with your body but can also be a fantastic vehicle to make new friends and improve your mental health.
Our community is in it’s infancy but we would love to have you on board! Whether you are just starting out in sport, are a new mum wanting your post baby body back or are just looking for another way to socialise and meet new friends we would love to hear from you.
We love to see women challenging themselves in new and different ways and the running and triathlon landscape has changed over the past few years to make this accessible to everyone. Events in Australia such as Park Run and Triathlon Pink mean that anyone can get out and give sport a go.
Local events are a great way to get started in the community and meet other women and mums.
Who is Miss Multisport?
Miss Multisport was started by Suzanne McCarthy in 2018 whilst pregnant with her second child. During both her pregnancy’s and her recovery post-partum she recognised not only a need for a supportive community around new mums and multisport but for women in general. Women’s fitness has become a key interest to Suzanne and she loves to see more women getting involved in sport and improving their health and wellbeing.
Suzanne has a long history in multisport having founded Tri Nation Triathlon a Brisbane based triathlon squad with her husband Mark in 2007. During this time Tri Nation introduced many people to triathlons through their beginner courses with a large proportion of these women.
As an athlete herself Suzanne’s accomplishments included completing six Ironman triathlon events with her best time 10:10 in Melbourne. With the last three years focused on her young family Finn and Charlie, Suzanne is now looking towards getting back into training in a safe and controlled manner.
