Since retiring from international rowing, Brianna has been training for triathlon and has compete in short course events. 

She recently travelled to Campeche, Mexico to take part in her first 70.3 IronMan Triathlon. The event consists of a 1.2 mile swim, a 56 mile bike and a 13.1 mile run.

Brianna finished 4th in her age group and 21st female overall. This finishing position qualified her to compete at the 2018 World Championships for IronMan 70.3, which will be held in South Africa in September 2018.
