Growing up with a love of sports, it quickly became evident that Brussels-born Claire Michel was an endurance-based athlete, swimming throughout her high school years before focusing on track and cross country at the University of Oregon. After injuries plagued her early career, Michel discovered multisports, winning Aquathlon World Championship silver in London in 2013 and tackling her first full season of World Cup and World Series racing in 2014 including a bronze in Chengdu.
A European Sprint title in 2016 set Michel up for an Olympic debut at Rio 2016, since when she has delivered consistent performances at the highest level including a career-best fifth at WTS Yokohama.
