We chatted with Diana to learn more about the personality behind the beauty:
Triathlete.com: How long have you been competing in triathlons?
Diana: I have been competing for two years now.
Triathlete.com: What is your proudest accomplishment in the sport?
Diana: My proudest accomplishment is the open water (ocean) swimming that I have completed.
Triathlete.com: What does it mean to you to move on as a finalist in the contest?
Diana: I have been the most active as a bikini model over the past two years and I am one of the few that actually loves to be active that is why this means so much to be chosen as November’s swimsuit contest winner. I would love to represent Miss Triathlete.com 2011 and carry a title that shows how hard working I am.
Triathlete.com: Do you have a background in modeling?
Diana: Yes, I am nationally qualified to compete in the IFBB Nationals Bikini class to become a pro fitness bikini model for IFBB. This has been a huge accomplishment to make it to this level and I am qualified until this September to make that dream come true. I have multiple bikini competition titles from events in Mexico, Bahamas, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia and South Carolina. I am traveling to the 2011 World Finals for Tropic Beauty this month in Las Vegas, Nev. for the first time. I really enjoy the life experiences I get from these competitions and the amazing people I am able to meet.
Triathlete.com: What do you think you’ll spend your $100 from TYR on?
Diana: I will spend my $100 TYR gift card on a new diamondback swimsuit and goggles. I try really hard to live in a swimsuit daily!
