Hayley Rigby

Triathlon

Hayley is a GB Age-Group triathlete, competing in both Sprint and Olympic distance triathlons. Throughout university she took part in 2-3 triathlon events a year – mainly for fun. She was then scouted by the cycling group Athlete Lab, where the team introduced her to the GB Age-Group triathlon trials. She successfully qualified and soon got the bug to start with a coach and take triathlon racing to the international level. She also works full time in the City of London as a Pricing Actuary. Hayley’s highlights to date have been in 2021, where she won every race entered; including the 2021 European Championships and the 2021 British National Championships.

"The female triathlete test allows me to regularly (every 4 months) ensure all the key biomarkers and hormones that reflect my state of health are where they should be. I have always found it hard to know when to push through on those tough, tired days and when to take a step back and allow myself some extra recovery time. Forth Edge removes the guess work and gives me a significant advantage because I can optimise my training and minimise my risk of injuries and illnesses. It gives me great piece of mind knowing that every test result is reviewed by an expert, who knows my profile and can track my historical results – this is invaluable to me as an age-group athlete.."

Hayley started her sporting career as a National-level swimmer from the age of 9 to 14 years, reaching countless National finals.  After getting a taste for a more sociable sport at school, she then transitioned to rowing and soon became a National Silver medallist in the Single Skull event. She made the difficult decision to decline a trial at the GB rowing performance squad in the same year she started university.

It wasn’t long before Hayley missed high-level sport and started to take part in a few triathlons a year, borrowing a friend’s bike and hanging on for dear life during the run. Fast forward to now, she is still loving triathlons, more so than ever! She now has a full-time coach, her own bikes and can actually run some good times!  Despite coming from a swimming background, her running and cycling are super strong!

In 2021, she took the gold medal in the 2021 European Championships and the 2021 British National Championships.

Hayley is using our Female Triathlon test to learn more about her hormones, key biomarkers and how this can help monitor her health and training load.
