Thanks for visiting my website!

I’m Anthony Chan, native of Flushing, NY. When someone asks me what I like to do for fun, I get the privilege of giving him/her a long winded answer about triathlon. As a kid, I found tennis to be my one true hobby – I spent countless hours on the tennis court, running around, chasing fuzzy yellow balls. Midway through college, I started running to cross train for tennis. This eventually led to some marathons and my first triathlon in 2011. Since then, I have raced every distance from your local sprint triathlon to the Ironman World Championships in 2014.

In 2016, I will be returning to the Big Island of Hawaii to compete in the Ironman World Championship. And when not training, you can find me submerged in reviewing (a.k.a. training to pass) for the CPA Exam while completing my MBA in Accounting.

Thanks for reading and following my passion for athletics and triathlon!
