Xena downunder for Xmas

Team TBB's Caroline 'Xena' Steffen has had an amazing year, with four 70.3 titles, the ITU Long Distance World Champion title, and runner up at IM Kona. She didn't feature on many previews of the big contenders for the IM World Champion title, but we think that might change in 2011.

Xena will be escaping the winter to do some hard training in Australia, but for now, all she wants for Christmas is a new P4 and some swiss chocolate... Wouldn't we all!

Are you Santa or the Grinch? Love Xmas or hate it?
Definitely Santa, love Christmas since I live in AUS and can spend the x-mas days on the beach.

Where are you spending Xmas this year?
In AUS together with my partner Dave and his family. But I also spend some days before Christmas in the snowy Swiss mountains.

Who will you spend it with?

How do you spend the day? Travelling around or bunkered down at home?
A bit of both.

What’s on your Gift Wish list this year?
A new P4 and some Swiss chocolate

Best present you ever got? (Aside from your blueseventy wetsuit of course)
My little iPod - never leave the house without it

Worst present you have ever got? It’s socks isn’t it….

Got any traditions you’ll be upholding? Carolling? Snow Angels? Bit of backyard cricket?
Glühwein and x-mas Guetzli in Switzerland - big barbie in AUS

What’s your training schedule like around Christmas?
The usual - just planed around the x-mas parties

Do you train on Christmas day, and if so, what do you do?
Last year I had 25th off and a 6h ride at the 26th.

Favourite tipple at Christmas? Do you allow a bit of eggnog?

We do nothing but eat from dawn to dusk at our place – what do you do? What’s on the menu for your feast?
Fresh food like prawns and fish

Do you prefer Xmas in the Snow or the Sand?

We’ve got Dean Martin crooning Xmas songs in the office – who will you be singing along to this Christmas?
I am a very bad singer...

Got any tips for getting rid of any excess, er, “Christmas weight”?
Not really, is also a problem for me!

Will you be heading off on holiday anywhere?
I'm just on the way back to Australia

What have you got planned for New Years?
Pleasant evening with friends and Fireworks in Mooloolaba.

And lastly, what’s this year’s New Years resolution?
Remain as I am
