Cassandre Beaugrand is a four-time world champion and Olympic bronze medalist in the mixed relay, French national champion, and two-time Olympian.
The way she races may look effortless, but behind that calm facade burns the heart of an absolute competitor.
While still racing as a junior, Cassandre was selected for the French Mixed Relay team which went on to win silver at the 2014 World Championships. That same year, she became junior world vice-champion and French national champion at the tender age of 17.
She has since cut her Olympic teeth in Rio, where she placed 30th. In 2018, after snatching up her first World Triathlon Series win in Hamburg she played a role in France winning their first Mixed Relay World Championship. After winning the test event in 2019 and twice defending their world championship title, the French mixed relay team (with Cassandre racing the penultimate leg) secured an Olympic bronze medal in triathlon – the first ever for the nation.
