Katie Zaferes is an American professional triathlete from Hampstead, Maryland, USA. Attending University at Syracuse, she first ran track before moving into ITU triathlon competitions.
Competing in World Triathlon events since 2013, Katie’s career has gone from strength to strength, reflected in her recent overall WTS rankings. Finishing the 2015 season in fifth place, her impressive consistency saw her climb one ranking place every subsequent year before finally winning the 2019 World Championships at the Lausanne Grand Final, recovering from a major bike crash at the Tokyo Test Event to take the tape and the title.
