Andre Lopes is a young professional triathlete who decided to chase his athletic dream in 2018 after graduating from college as an Electrical Engineer in Brazil. He got into the sport of triathlon in his early 20’s and won his age group in his first ever Ironman. He then went on to place 6th in his Age Group at the Kona Ironman World Championships…all within his first year of triathlon.
In his first year as a pro triathlete, he moved to Santa Fe, NM and trained/lived under the guidance of Coach Ryan Bolton – training with his athletes and learning his methods. Andre has ambitious goals for the future and has already achieved 4x Top 5 Ironman 70.3 finishes, including his first podium and personal best time in a 70.3 of 3:47. He also had an impressive 27th place finish in the 2019 Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Nice, France – placing the highest of all Latin Americans in the race.
Although Andre has a short background in triathlon, he has good experience and understanding of the technical aspects of training and he also understands how to make the transition from amateur to pro athlete. He also has a good knowledge base of how to efficiently improve performance as an age group athlete.
