Lisa Perterer (born 16 October 1991 in Villach) is an Austrian professional triathlete, winner of the 2009 Junior European Cup circuit and Austrian Junior Champion 2010.

In 2011, Perterer changed to the Elite category. At the World Championship Series triathlon in Kitzbuhel, she was included into the start list only thanks to a wildcard. At the World Cup triathlon in Edmonton, however, still a junior, she most surprisingly won the bronze medal behind Ashleigh Gentle and Mateja Simic and thus proved to be the best Austrian female triathlete, far better than Lydia Waldmüller, who placed 21st. Thanks to the bronze medal, Lisa Perterer was regularly qualified for the World Championship Series triathlon in Hamburg where she placed 15th and again proved to belong the world elite. At Tiszaújváros she again achieved a good position among the world elite.

Lisa Perterer is one of Austria's greatest hopes in triathlon, which has not produced elite medalists since the days of Australian Austrian Olympic winner Kate Allen. For the time being, no Austrian female triathlete is qualified for the London Olympics 2012.[1] In the Women Olympic Ranking, however, thanks to her first World Cup participation, Perterer could even surpass Lydia Waldmüller, who did not take part at the World Championship triathlon in Hamburg.[2]

Lisa Perterer attended the Sports High School BORG SSLK in Klagenfurt and represents the army club HSV (Heeressportverein) Triathlon Kärnten. In autumn 2011, Perterer joined the sports high performance scheme of the Austrian army.
