Ever known of someone that was viewed last but refuse to let the thoughts of others, define their pathway in life? Well that is Dr. Tekemia. She remains motivated by the lack of belief of others in her ability to succeed and continue to rise while reaching back to help others along the way.

Dr. Tekemia Dorsey is a pioneer, a trail blazer, a glass-shatterer, and transformational leader. In four short years, she has risen to the top of the multisport industry, not widely represented by minorities. She has earned her seat at the table as the “First African American to serve on USA Triathlon Board of Directors’ in the Board’s 45-year History.” Defying the odds, creating opportunities for others and being an inspiration and hope to many, Dorsey continues to be a role model for urban girls/boys who others did not believe in from the Inner City and around the globe, as well as for women and girls seeking to break through the glass ceilings of life.


Dr. Tekemia serves as CEO of The International Association of Black Triathletes, Senior Consultant at DTD’s Urban Multisport Consulting Firm and General Director – Mid East Region overseeing Maryland, Washington D.C., Virginia, W. Virginia, Delaware, Ohio, N. Carolina, Tennessee, and Kentucky.


She is passionate, motivated, an inspiration, has unwavering faith, strong-willed, and determined to succeed. Dr. Tekemia remains in the Top 3% - 4% of successful individuals of the world across multiple industries, via leadership, athletics, coaching, as a business executive, and the list continues. Individuals are motivated by Dr. Tekemia through her achievements and accomplishments. She has the gift of reaching people where they are and leaving them knowing they have yet to scratch the surface of their innate ability to succeed.


Dr. Tekemia is your Go-to-Expert if you want to revitalize urban communities, learn how to shatter glass ceilings, learn how to overcome adversity, want to learn how to transform self and/or others, or simply need inspiration and motivation for all, especially urban youth, urban communities, women and girls across any industry.

Hope Is Where the Heart Is

IABT Junior Multisport Club was Founded by CEO, Dr. Tekemia Dorsey and Co-Founder Siblings Heaven Simons, Halee Simons, and Beloved Joshua (BJ) Simons when they were all just in elementary in 2014. The siblings along with their older brother Brandon, watched their Mom go from non-swimmer at age 43 to Ironman FINISHER in nine months and 15 days. Upon completion of Ironman, the sibling trio wanted to become TRIathletes and so their training with Mom, begin. 

A few years ago, they had only hoped their LOVE for TRIathlons would catch on in urban communities. Some 4-5 years later it has through their Club Program (IABT Junior Multi-Sport Club) with the assistance of their host organizations (International Association of Black Triathletes and IABT MultiSport Racing. The Club Program exposes Club Athletes to more then just sports.

As they begin to take part in multisport events in Spring 2015 (duathlons, triathlons, etc), they noticed there were not many youth that looked like them and begin to question why? The outcome was simple there weren't as many black youth in the sport because they were unaware, unfamiliar and therefore not taking part. 

Because of their dream, along with their Mom’s organizational vision, Dr. Tekemia Dorsey lives are changing in urban communities through the Multisport Industry.

IABT Junior Multisport Club is an AWARD WINNING Club who mission is to educate and to increase participation in the multisport industry for all but especially black youth and those living in urban communities. 

Causes the Club have spearheaded include not limited to childhood obesity, adult obesity, cancer, and getting kids healthy and active through the swim, cycle and run initiative.

As a family, nothing is taken for granted and each day remains a BLESSING in and of itself. Learn more at
