Despite the setbacks, Cave has had success at all distances including gold medals at the ITU Short Course Championships (2002) and Long Course Championships (2007). She’s also podiumed at the Ironman 70.3 World Championship race twice, including a second-place finish at last year’s race. She’s also the reigning Wildflower Long Course Triathlon champion.
