Olivia Bradshaw

Hi! I’m Olivia Bradshaw, a third-year civil engineering major. Before triathlon I was a competitive swimmer for eight years, and decided that I was too burnt out to swim in college. Instead I chose a sport which had my least favorite genre of exercise: running. Despite my general dislike of running, though, you’ll often find me either training or doing some other extracurricular activity instead of working on my homework. Triathlon has brought back my love of exercise, and the team is full of the coolest people around, making the tri club at least the third best club at UT 😉 Although, my older brother assures me that I am not among the cool people on the team — you’ll have to join to find out for sure.

Jack Cooney
Volunteer Officer

Hello everybody, my name is Jack. I am a junior business student, and I joined Texas Triathlon my freshman year. I played football and basketball in high school, and I knew I wanted to continue with doing something competitive in college. Triathlon can be intimidating at first, but it is an awesome challenge, and even if you have no previous experience in the three sports, give it a shot!

Eli Blinchevsky

Hello! My name is Eli Blinchevsky, and I'm a 3nd year Psychology and Plan II major. In high school I was a competitive swimmer, but decided to branch out into running and cycling upon entering college. Outside of triathlon training, I enjoy hiking, listening to 70's music, and reading. I'm looking forward to meeting everyone!

John MacMichael
Technical Officer

Greetings! My name is John MacMichael and I'm a senior computer science major. I have been swimming competitively since before I can remember, and I ran cross country for two years in high school. I also have assistant coached for a summer league swim team in Virginia. Knowing that I was nowhere near good enough for UT's D1 swim team, and having done a sprint triathlon when I was 13, I decided to try the triathlon club. It has been a great way to fit exercise into my busy schedule. Outside of triathlon I enjoy listening to music, reading sci-fi/fantasy, and participating in white-hat hacking competitions.

Abby Partridge
Social Officer

Hi! I’m Abby and I’m a senior environmental engineering and chemistry major. I swam competitively for 11 years and needed something to fill the void coming into college. I had a little bit of experience with running, and NONE with cycling, but I really love being part of a team where we can share our experiences and expertises with one another in a collaborative and fun environment. Joining the triathlon team my freshman year allowed me to continue my love for swimming, while also giving me the opportunity to grow out of my comfort zone, all the while bonding with amazing people. 🙂
