Chloe in action for Australia.

Lennox Head professional triathlete Chloe Butt has turned down the opportunity to join USA Olympic coach Jarrod Evans and his high-performance squad in San Diego. 

‘Turning down this opportunity to train under Jarrod Evans was very difficult. I will turn my focus to training locally,’ she said.

The grant recipient at Southern Cross University looks to finish her Master’s degree at the end of the year.

‘Juggling a career in sport and a postgraduate degree has certainly had its challenges but I couldn’t be happier to have had this opportunity and to help people,’ she said.

Chloe has a background in oncology nursing and has spent time overseas providing women and children with healthcare and education.

‘None of this would be possible without the amazing support and assistance of SCU,’ she said.

Chloe holds numerous Australian titles in both swimming and aquathons, state titles in surfing, running, triathlon and swimming, an international ranking in triathlon, and back when she was just 18 she qualified for the Beijing Olympic swimming trials.

This year she won the Byron Bay Swimming Classic.
