Oakland Triathlon Festival Ambassadors

Smetha Amit

Swetha Amit started her triathlon journey in 2017 at the age of 36 when she landed in California for the first time. After overcoming her fear of swimming in the open water, she was hooked on the sport. She found the thrill of doing three sports at the same time an exhilarating experience. Within a year she has completed one Sprint distance, five Olympic distances and Ironman 70.3 Santa Cruz with the support of her husband and 5-year-old daughter. Her journey has just begun and she has miles to go before she sleeps! You can follow her adventures on her personal blog.
