Kirsten Pannekoek is an Accredited Nutritionist and aspiring sports dietitian. You may see her around as part of the nutrition works team as she’s currently doing work experience.

KP competed as part of the nutrition works team for the Busso Ironman 70.3 in May 2015 and 2016, smashing the swim leg, and has just retired from competitive swimming. KP’s last results at Australian Open Swimming Championships were a season best in 100&200m backstroke and a PB in the 50m. KP helped our nutrition works team to 2nd place at Busso 70.3 with a cracking time of 23 minutes for the 1.9km swim.

In between training and study, KP enjoys good food and getting creative in the kitchen.  As a bit of a self confessed ‘foodie’ she also runs @morningteawithkp, dedicated to her food adventures.
