Melissa Hauschildt

3x World Champion Triathlete 

The road to success all began for Melissa at the age of 11 years old when she first started athletics, contesting most events and quickly excelling in the 800m, reaching state level. Proving her abilities weren't confined to steeplechase, Melissa placed an outstanding eighth in the 1500m at the World Junior Championships in Santiago, Chile in October and then, in March 2001, placed 14th in the World Junior Cross Country Championships.



During mid 2010, Melissa's bid for the Delhi Commonwealth Games was derailed due to injury. It was at this point, while cross-training on the bike that she made the decision to change focus from running to triathlon. In the months that followed, Melissa enjoyed a stunning start to her triathlon career with numerous wins and a handful of course records within the space of a few months. 

In just 6 years of racing triathlons Melissa has won more Ironman 70.3's than any other female in history.

  • Mel has won at least one World Championship or Major Championship title each and every year.
  • Mel has the best winning record of any female at the Ironman 70.3 World Champs (2 gold, 1 silver, 1 4th)
  • Besides Kona last year, Mel has won every Ironman she raced all have been Championship races beating the best (Mirinda Carfare, Daniella Ryf, Caroline Steffen, Yvonne Van Vlerken etc).
  • In 2016 alone Mel was able to win 2 Ironman's in one year, 2 European Champs in one year (never been done), an Australian Championship, and a 2nd at the World Champs
