My names Penny Slater I’m 21 years old and I’ve just finished racing my first year as a professional triathlete. Last year I mainly focused on off-road triathlons as I absolutely love mountain biking! But this year I’m combining my season with off-road stuff and some 70.3 races. Last year my best result was being crowned ITU U23 Cross Triathlon World Champion and placing 5th elite female as well as placing 3rd Elite female on the Xterra Asia tour. When I’m not racing and training I study a Bachelor of secondary education and love to spend time with family (dog included!) and surfing when I can.
Up until I was 17 I competed at national and international level for equestrian as well as nationally for Hockey. I picked up triathlon in my last year of school and haven’t looked back! I’m so excited for the upcoming year as I have an actioned packed race calendar taking me to most corners of the world!
Penny's Race Schedule for this year:
- February: husky long course and crackenback off-road triathlon.
-March Xterra Albay Philippines and potentially a local race at home.
-April: Xterra NZ, Xterra Cebu Philippines (Asia pacific champs) and Xterra China.
-May Xterra Tahiti and port to port stage mountain bike race.
- then over our winter I will most likely travel to Europe and do ITU cross tri worlds and European Xterra Championships.
- August 5th 70.3 Asia Pacific champs Cebu Philippines.
-October 29th Xterra World Championships Maui
- Noosa tri (just for fun!)
- Challenge Shepparton

Grab your tape measure, make sure it is held flat, not twisted and always make sure that it is held firmly, not cutting in or squashing the area you are measuring. Please take the measurements below and compare them to the size chart to find the size that is right for you.
Taking your measurements whilst naked will give you your exact measurements, but if you intend wearing a garment (like a sports bra under your trikit), then take your measurements with those garments on.
CHEST/BUST – Place tape measure around the fullest and widest part of your bust (usually the part with the nipples!) Be careful not to let the tape measure slip down at the back, or squash you.
WAIST – Place tape measure between the bottom of your ribs and the top of your hip bones (the easiest way to find your waist is to stand in front of front of a mirror and suck your tummy in hard - you should see it!). It's also usually the narrowest part of your natural waistline.
HIP – Place the measuring tape around the fullest, widest part, usually over your bottom or at the top of your thighs between your hips and thighs.
HEIGHT – In bare feet, stand against a wall and mark the point perpendicular to the top of your head. Measure up to this point from the floor.
These measurements do not include ease, which is the amount of extra space allowed in a garment for comfort and movement. The amount of ease added can greatly differ depending on the fit of the garment.
Still not sure about what size you could be? Our two product models are good examples.
