Triathlon coach Brett Sutton has announced that Australian athlete Rebecca Preston is joining his superstar squad after a long hiatus, in a bid to wrap up her tri career on a high.
Preston was at her peak in 2006 and 2007, when she claimed back-to-back victories at Ironman Switzerland. She also placed fifth in Kona in 2007, and has won IM Austria, UK and 70.3 Antwerp.
“Within her first year as a professional triathlete Beck won her first Ironman event on debut at the distance. She went on to be one of the best Ironman racers in the world and had a unbelievable three season streak,” Brett Sutton wrote on the Trisutto website.

Preston eventually moved back to Australia to resume a career in teaching, but has been racing as an age-grouper throughout the last 18 months.
“We’ve kept in touch and in 2014 had a talk about finishing off her career as it started – with an Ironman win,” writes Sutton. “She has the weapons to do so. As of January 1, 2015 Beck rejoined the squad and we are now building the machine to once again terrorise Ironman podiums around the world.”
Preston will be joining a number of high profile athletes on Sutton’s squad, including Swiss athletes Daniela Ryf (winner of last year’s 70.3 Worlds) and Nicola Spirig (gold medal winner at the 2012 London Olympics), last year’s Alpe d’Huez Triathlon winner Todd Skipworth (AUS) and Britain’s Ritchie Nicholls, winner of the 70.3 European champs in 2013.
