In 2016, Charlotte had her most successful season to date, finishing 3rd in the ITU World Triathlon Series in Cozumel, Mexico ending the year ranked 8th overall in the World Triathlon Series.

HOT PROPERTY INTERVIEWS - BRADEN CURRIE & JOCELYN MCCAULEY

Both Braden and Jocelyn stunned Taupo with wins at IM New Zealand this year beating Cam Brown and Meredith Kessler for their first IMNZ victories.

Braden is one of New Zealand’s most well-known multisport athletes, but his talent extends far beyond multisport.  In this year alone he’s raced to a 2nd place at Coast to Coast, won Red Bull Defiance, won IM New Zealand and most recently took out the short course win with his teammate Courtney Atkinson at the inaugural Breca Wanaka Swimrun.

Jocelyn hails from Texas and whilst growing up there excelled in both swimming and running.  The end of 2016 brought Jocelyn her first Ironman win at IM Mallorca and this year she accomplished her dream of winning IM New Zealand.
