“My job, I feel isn’t a job. It’s not even a career. It is a commitment that I have to do 24/7. Being an athlete at the ‘elite level’ means we are all in the top one percent of our sport. The little changes you do each and every day can make a big difference.” ~ Sarah Haskins
About Sarah Haskins
Sarah Haskins grew up in Missouri where she was high school state champion in both cross country and swimming.

Graduating in 2003 with a degree in Elementary Education, Sarah wasn’t ready to quit sports and become a teacher yet. She decided to try competing in the triathlon. She ran her first race in St. Louis and loved it so much she never looked back. Sarah plans to qualify for the 2012 Olympics and return home with a medal. After that one of her goals is to start a family with her husband.
