Carter grew up playing competitive soccer and played at the collegiate level. After a couple knee injuries, he started cycling and running to remain active. This eventually led him to explore triathlon, which provided the opportunity to continually progress and evolve in three different disciplines and engage in a community of athletes. Training under some of the best athletes in the sport, he has raced a variety of distances (with 70.3 being his current personal favorite). Carter is eager to continue to grow in the sport, help athletes of all abilities and backgrounds learn the ways of multisport, and share his passion, knowledge and experience he has gained as an athlete of Matt Hanson Racing.
