Debbie James is beginning her 3rd year competing in triathlon, has finished three 70.3s, and is on her way to completing a full distance Ironman in 2018 with the support of ATC. She has been swimming competitively year round since the age of five, representing her club team at the national level, as well as being named a Scholastic All American.
Debbie then had the opportunity to attend the University of Georgia and compete on their Division I National Championship Swimming and Diving team. There she was a 4 time Varsity letter winner and was honored as a SEC Scholar Athlete. As a recent addition to the ATC swim coaching staff, Debbie is enjoying being on deck to help other triathletes embrace their inner swimmer and learn to love being in the water. Her motto in swimming is, “Work smarter not harder”.
