Sarah Piampiano

I put my body through a lot with training. So sleep isn’t just about resting. It’s about recovering and that’s why I sleep on a Bear Mattress.

Sarah Piampiano is a top ranked long-course professional triathlete, competing in iron-distance and half-iron-distance events around the world. Piampiano was working as an investment banker when she participated in her first triathlon in 2009. After quitting smoking, she started regular training and improved quickly. In 2012 she left her full-time position in finance and began competing as a professional under the guidance of Matt Dixon at Purplepatch Fitness, winning 70.3 New Orleans and qualifying for the World Championships in Kona (finishing 23rd) in her first season of professional racing. While racing Ironman Texas in 2014 she suffered a broken femur and spent that summer rehabbing the injury.

Since starting her professional career Piampiano has accumulated 70.3-distance wins, 2 Ironman wins and 16 podium performances as well as a 7th place finish at the 2015 and 2016 Ironman World Championships in Hawaii. She recently ran a sub-3 marathon and finished 11th at the 2018 Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.
