It was two Unstoppable performances that saw Lana Rogers go-to-back and claim both the 2019/20 and the 2020/21 Nutri-Grain Series. Calling Cronulla Beach in Sydney’s south home, Rogers moved to the Sunshine Coast in Queensland to pursue a professional IronWoman career. The move paid off, with Rogers not only claiming two Nutri-Grain Series trophies, but also two first place finishes in the iconic Coolangatta Gold Long Course. When she is not competing and training, Rogers enjoys cooking and spending time with her partner and family, and works as a Learn to Swim teacher part-time.
