Malindi brings her skills as a competitive runner to the sport of Triathlon. As a 12 time Canadian National medalist in Track and Field and Cross Country between 2003 – 2012, Malindi is not new to the race scene, competing at the national and international levels, including representing Canada at the 2004 Olympics. After retiring from the professional running scene in 2012, she began teaching and started a family. By 2014, Malindi was missing the competitive life and had her eye set on returning to competitive racing but injuries hampered that return. Using swimming and cycling as training outlets she soon set her sights on Triathlon. After a 4:29 stellar AG performance at 2016 IRONMAN 70.3 Victoria, finishing behind pro Melanie McQuaid, Malindi applied to race professionally.
Over the course of her first year and a half as a pro, Malindi notched 6 podium performances in the 70.3 distances. Tackling her first full distance IRONMAN race at IRONMAN Arizona in November 2016, Malindi finished on the podium in 3rd with a sub 9 hour time – ranking her with the 5th fastest debut ever by a woman and the 3rd best all-time Canadian performance.
