Lisa Bentley will be a keynote speaker at the Endurance Exchange, hosted by USA Triathlon from March 3 – 5.

Presented by BOA Nutrition, the third annual Endurance Exchange will be a virtual presentation. 

Over the course of her illustrious triathlon career, Bentley won 11 Ironman Championships and 16 Ironman 70.3 competitions. For over 10 years, Bentley ranked fifth overall in the world and represented Canada many times, including in the 1995 Pan American Games. 

Throughout her career, Bentley is known as a hero for having been able to even compete in triathlon. Diagnosed with cystic fibrosis in university, she told The Citizen in February 2020 that cystic fibrosis was her gift. She began using her victories – especially her 2002 Ironman Championship – to show those with CF that there is hope. 

Almost four years ago, Bentley released her book “An Unlikely Champion” and since has been a motivational speaker. Her most memorable speeches, were in front of the Toronto Raptors and the Toronto Maple Leafs. It was one of the proudest moments of her career. 

Professionally, Bentley has worked with CBC, TSN, CTV and Sportsnet for triathlon in the 2012 and 2020 Olympic Games. She also is a part of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and a Triathlon Canada Hall of Fame inductee.
