Jyotsana is a triathlon veteran, competing for the last 9 years. Her interest in triathlons began as a hobby but in the past couple of years she has been competing at a higher level in a variety of distances. Jyotsana has recently been selected to represent Australia at the ITU World Championship Long Course Triathlon in Weihai, China.
Jyotsana developed epilepsy at the age of 15 and like most people living with the impact of this condition has had some challenges dealing with the demands of ‘triathlete’ lifestyle. Her epilepsy is however currently well controlled with medication. Jyotsana describes herself as motivated and determined, consistently striving towards goals in her life not only as a triathlete, but also as an interior architect.
Whilst sticking to a pretty strict training regime, Jyotsana enjoys squeezing in time for overseas travel, family and friends, and some of Melbourne’s finest including art, design and food! After competing in China, Jyotsana is working towards her first Ironman in her hometown in March 2015.
