Tyler Butterfield

Professional Triathlete

BIO

Tyler Butterfield is a rare sporting talent, having raced at the height of competition in two separate disciplines. A two-time Olympian in triathlon (Athens 2004 and London 2012) and a three-time Commonwealth Games contender (2006 in cycling and 2002 & 2014 in triathlon), Tyler is now focused on long distance triathlon and the sport’s “holy grail”, the Ironman World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.

Tyler’s athletic prowess is a brilliant blend of hard work and genetics – his mother was a marathoner and his father was an Olympic rower, a marathoner and an Ironman pioneer (setting the course run record in 1981).  Tyler proudly enjoys dual citizenship (Bermudan and American) and travels the world training and racing, accompanied by his long-time love Nikki and their three children, Savana, Walker and Grace.
