Ruth-Ann, who studied Philosophy and Communication at the University of Southern Mississippi, has been a triathlete since age 12. She first started participating in the sport as her sister had competed in triathlon. She discovered paratriathlon a few years later and has had the opportunity to race as an elite paratriathlete level ever since. Ruth-Ann recently defended her title at the 2016 Paratriathlon National Championships with a win in the women’s PTS5 division in 1:26:51. She then went on to back it up the following year at the 2017 Sarasota ITU Paratriathlon World Cup.
