About Us

Trifactri is a triathlon team and training squad that caters for athletes of various abilities, accomplishments and goals. From professional athletes and top age group competitors, all the way to those who want to complete their first triathlon.

 

At Trifactri we pride ourselves on the fact that all our athletes become like family. They support each other in every race as well as form an extremely close knit group in training. In Trifactri our athletes thrive on the healthy competition their peers present. They always push one another to new heights but more importantly, they always have fun doing so.

 

Trifactri understands the importance of family, careers and the time that it takes to fit training in.  Our coaches are all very well groomed in offering personalized training programs to suit each individual athletes lifestyle.

 

All coaches are coached by Olympian and 2 times Ironman winner Lucie Zelenkova as well as Ironman certified coach Aubrey Holton.

Our Mission

Trifactri's mission is to provide personalised training to each individual aimed at reaching their personal goals whilst encouraging them to believe in themselves. 

 

We have a wide scope of athletes all with different interests but, when raceday comes around, we all depend on the strength of the group. 

 

​We, as a club, strive to put our athletes in a position to perform to the best of their abilities as well as create opportunities for them to grow within the sport and within themselves.

Coach Bio

Trifactri is a triathlon coaching academy started by Lucie Zelenkova, an Olympian and multiple Ironman winner.

Lucie came to South Africa to compete in a local triathlon series and soon fell in love with the people and the country.  With a master’s degree in teaching (biology and sport), 2 years of university triathlon studies and many years of professional racing and coaching behind her, she took a few athletes under her wing.

Results speak for themselves and those athletes found themselves achieving personal bests and new performance levels.

​It was not long before her number of athletes grew and Trifactri was born.
