Atlas Multisports began as a female-specific triathlon squad with a group of fun 20-something women learning to swim, ride and run with the assistance of qualified coach and former professional triathlete Jason Crowther and his wife Lisa Crowther.
The group set a goal to race their first ever half ironman event at Yeppoon in Queensland. The enjoyment and lifelong friendships that came from the small squad meant it was expanded to include partners. From a dozen squad members it has increased to become the Sunshine Coast’s premier triathlon squad, offering a range of training options for athletes of all ages and abilities.
Owners Jason and Lisa continue to coach and manage the squad, which offers several training sessions a week, seasonal training camps, skill sessions and beginner courses. Athletes who are not based on the Sunshine Coast needn’t miss out with several national and international athletes following individual training programs, tailored each month to an athlete’s needs and schedule.
