Kaitlin Shiver Donner

 

My athletic career began when I joined a club swim at about eight years old. I ran middle school track but didn’t start training until my freshman year at Satellite High School. While in high school I competed in cross country, swimming and track and field, for four years. In 2004, I was named a USA Swimming Scholastic All-American.

 

While in high school I was a member of the Florida State Championship Cross Country team in 2005-2006 and a member of the Florida State Championship Swim Team in 2005-2006. My senior year I earned high school All-American honors with a sixth-place finish in the mile at the National Scholastic Indoor Championships in 4:53.

 

After high school, I decided to attend the University of Florida on a cross country/track scholarship. At the University of Florida I competed on the NCAA qualifying cross country team in 2008 and 2009. I also specialized in the 1500m on the track, qualifying for NCAA Regionals 2008

 

The summer of 2009 I earned my elite license in triathlon by winning Age Group Nationals in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. This summer I decided to pursue triathlons solely instead of running my senior year at UF. This summer I also accepted an offer to train part of the summer at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

 

At the age of 20, I began racing triathlon as a professional and have never looked back. So far it has been an amazing experience and I have met incredible people thus far. I look forward to upcoming races!

 

Other than training I enjoy spending time with my family and pets, as well as cooking (mainly baking!)
