More than Sport began with the vision of Chris Lieto, Ironman champion, world record holder in cycling, and 3 time triathlon champion, who wanted to do more with his athletic ability than simply compete. Simply said: Chris founded More Than Sport to provide a way for athletes to invest in communities of need, particularly those we compete in.
The heart of the mission of More than Sport is to do what the name implies: To partner with athletes, who are used to giving their all to what they do, and empower them to give in brand new ways. To give back to and to serve in the communities where we race, ride, and compete. To take the passion and determination, the spirit of the athlete, and partner that with the sometimes-overwhelming material and emotional needs in communities around us.
