Beyond #97: 2020 Tokyo Olympic Dreams

April 24, 2021

Hannah started racing at 9 years old. She was always seeking the biggest challenge should could find and went all-in on every endeavor she pursued. Standing at a running race, she pointed at a booth advertising triathlon and announced, “I want to do that.” With the unwavering support of a family that had never pursued racing sports before, she soon found herself on a triathlon start line. Standing in a sea of racers, almost double her height, she never felt small when she competed. Her big aspirations made up for her young age and small stature. Her appearance as a young athlete may have been unassuming, but she never questioned herself because she was taught that you can conquer any challenge with determination and persistence. Before the age of 18 she won the XTERRA Amateur World Championship in triathlon two times, and by 20 she had turned her focus entirely to the mountain bike. She has worked up the ranks starting as the two-time California NICA high school state champion and she finished off her college career with 5 Collegiate Cycling Individual National Championship titles. She graduated from Lindenwood University with two health science degrees. One is in Athletic Training and another is in Exercise Science. She is also a USA Cycling Certified Coach and Board-Certified Athletic Trainer. Hannah believes that hard work, resolve, and resilience is the hallmarks of success. She thrives on not only racing the competition but constantly bettering herself. She is still always seeking the biggest challenge that she can find, but now that challenge is wearing a USA Cycling Jersey and on a World Stage. Follow Hannah on her #RideToTokyo - @hannah_finchamp
