Adrian Santic - triathlete
Adrian Santic
Adrian Santic is a triathlete living and training in beautiful Seattle. He has a day-job at the University of Washington Applied Physics Lab, and is a pilot and a member of Civil Air Patrol, yet manages to find the time for swimming biking and running.

Adrian has been a life-long mountain biker. He switched to road cycling in 2006 and had a lot of fun riding on wide open roads in Seattle's east suburbs. In early 2009 he started looking for something more and discovered triathlons. Adrian has had some prior running experience, but he was brand new to competitive swimming.

Having gained experience in a few triathlons in 2009, and having perfected his swim stroke over the winter months, Adrian has competed in more and longer triathlons in 2010 under the guide of his coach Angela Naeth. A knee injury mid-season ended the racing for 2010. The 2011 season was mostly a tentative return to competitive racing with an emphasis on shorter races and avoiding re-injury.

The 2012 season was a success with Ironman 70.3 events and a podium finish at a Rev 3 race, followed by more successes in year 2013 with another podium finish and a qualification for USA National Championships. Year 2014 followed with a 1st place AG at an Olympic distance race, and competing at ITU Chicago and more IM 70.3 events. Almost the entire 2015 season was a loss due to a bike crash early in the season, apart from late season racing at Rocketman at the Kennedy Space Center. The 2016 season was essentially a return to racing, back to Victoria, Whistler, and Pula; the races missed due to 2015 injury.

The 2017 and 2018 seasons saw a full Ironman finish in Arizona as well as several Ironman 70.3 halfs. The entirety of 2019 saw only two small local races due to segue into aviation. Tentative goals for the upcoming 2021 season, if the pandemic is under control by summer, are competing in one Ironman 70.3 event and a number of short course triathlons.
