The four-time Olympian will speak in Chelsea as part of Aberdeen Bike & Outdoor’s ‘Cabin Fever’ event series on Jan. 30.

Taormina is the only woman to appear in four consecutive Olympiads in three different events – swimming (1996), triathlon (2000, 2004), and modern pentathlon (2008).

“It’s a honor to have four-time Olympian and world champion triathlete Sheila Taormina come to our store and speak,” said Aberdeen Bike & Outdoors owner Mike Casey. “Over the years I have had a chance to get to know her, and she is such a down-to-earth person with endless inspiration and information.”
