I competed in my first sprint triathlon back in 1988 when triathlon was in its infancy. Over the years I have seen many developments and enjoyed watching the sport grow professionally and pleased to see triathlon being accessible to everyone. During my involvement within the sport I have realised irrespective of your background that with hard work and commitment anything is possible. My ethos has enabled me to complete no fewer than eight full Ironman internationally, numerous halves and many other related events. I have enjoyed making many friends along the way. I don’t competed regularly now, but get great pleasure from coaching and helping athletes to attain their personal goals and aspirations in life.
