"The Greg Bennett Show"


In this episode of The Greg Bennett Show, Greg is joined by an Australian Triathlon legend: Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist, 3x ITU World Championship Medallist, Multiple 70.3 Winner, Dual Olympian, and ITU Hall of fame inductee ... Brad Kahlefeldt.


After an incredible professional career spanning almost two decades, Brad started his coaching business, BKR coaching, and has helped Professionals win major titles, young athletes compete on the world stage, and amateurs smash through their goals.

Brad is married to Ironman 70.3 legend and Olympian Radka Kahlefeldt, and together they own and operate their hometown swim school, Wagga swim hub.


We’ve been mates for 25 years. We have trained together and raced against each other all over the world.
