Richard Gossow

Coach Richard translated his love for triathlon into coaching young athletes by starting Superkids Multisport in 2013. His journey with triathlons started when he was in his early 30s in Cape Town, South Africa. He counts his triathlons to over 50 by now, ranging from sprints to IronMan distance races.

Several years before starting Superkids Multisport, Coach Richard introduced his wife Janet and sons Michael & Daniel to triathlon. After coaching his children for a few years, he decided to include more kids and this lead to starting Superkids Multisport.

Coach Richard is a Certified USA Triathlon Level I and one of only 60 Youth & Junior Elite Coaches in the USA.

In 2015, USA Triathlon awarded Coach Richard with the Volunteer of the Year Award for his effort in coaching and teaching his athletes life skills also.
