I have been taking part in triathlons and aquathlons for 3 years now. Coming from a running background I have had to work hard to improve the other 2 disciplines. I am a member of Tewkesbury Triathlon Club, and first qualified for the GB age group team in 2018. I balance my training and racing around teaching at a primary school and I am lucky to have a very understanding wife who is normally shouting at me whilst racing - if she's not racing herself!
2018 was a big season for me, finishing 10th in my category at the European aquathlon championships in Ibiza to back up some decent performances in the UK. So far in 2019 I have represented GB again in Pontevedra for the world aquathlon championships, finishing 10th again.
I'm looking forward to what the rest of the season has in store and hoping I can stay fit and qualify to represent GB in sprint and standard distance triathlon for 2020.
