Kate Roberts   Kate Roberts Triathlon Coaching

I offer personalised coaching, designed for individuals to realise their specific goals through a customised training plan.
I am a double Olympian triathlete having raced for South Africa at the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008 and the London Olympic Games in 2012, but my focus is now on coaching. I love coaching and enjoy working with dedicated, enthusiastic athletes that are motivated to improve and relish the process of hard work.


In 2006, I decided to pursue a professional career in triathlon in order to achieve my childhood dream of representing South Africa at an Olympic Games. This was my sole focus and driving force for 8 years and it was satisfying to be able to achieve my goal and compete in two Olympic Games in Beijing in 2008 and London in 2012. In 2010 I achieved my highest world ranking of 7th position. After competing at Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland in 2014 and winning a silver medal as part of the South African mixed triathlon relay team, I realised that I had achieved everything that I wanted to in triathlon. I decided that new ventures awaited me in coaching triathletes to help them realise their full potential.

I offer professional coaching services for triathletes and runners and my programs are developed following an initial screening, whereby I compile important information about the athlete, such as available time to train, past performances and future goals. I use a combination of power, heart rate and perceived effort for training programmes.

There are four things that I believe are essential to making progress in Triathlon and they are:

  1. Consistency
  2. Recovery
  3. A well structured and balanced training programme
  4. Good and honest communication with your coach.
