Bio...

Katie Hewison (nee Ingram) was recruited to triathlon through the trigold talent identification scheme. She has been personally funded by Barrie Well to make the transition from elite runner to elite triathlete. She is now also supported as part of the UK Sport Lottery funded World Class Programme. She trains internationally under coach Darren Smith.

Katie was the 2009 Commonwealth mountain running champion, and is a former county level swimmer. Her transition to triathlon has seen her win silver at the ETU European Duathlon Championships and finish on the podium at ITU Triathlon European Cup races in Senec and Geneva.
 
Katie achieved a 6th place finish at the 2010 GE Edinburgh ITU Duathlon World Championships in September and combined with Cat Morrison and Sophie Coleman for overall team gold. She then won the senior title in Gijon in September 2011 in a close race with Germany's Jenny Schulz, who had taken the lead in a tight race, only to be overtaken in the last 50m by a fast-finishing Hewison.
 
Katie is a former student at Loughborough University, having graduated with BA joint honors in English and Sports Science, so moving back to the area meant living somewhere familiar when she was recruited to the trigold programme and relocated back in Loughborough.
 
As well as being invited to join the trigold programme in 2009, Katie also won Deal or No Deal on TV.  “I actually applied as a bit of a joke and didn’t really expect to get on, but I did and everything fell just right. I filmed the show two months before I had even heard about trigold.”
