BIRTHDAY: January 14th, 1978
SPECIALITY: 70.3, full distance and extreme triathlons
I have been a fan of all sports especially endurance from the early 90’s. If I was not mountain biking or cycling, I was running, hiking or swimming every day. I found Triathlon at my local outdoor swimming pool in Hampton where I grew up, there was a Triathlon club ‘Thames Turbo’ which trained there 2 times a week and was open to anyone to join, so that’s what I did. I loved the club coached sessions and community of triathletes from the start; I was hooked.
By the time I was 14 I had represented Great Britain internationally at a youth level and well, the rest is history…
I turned Professional in 1997 and am still racing Professionally today and loving it just as much as I did way back then. I have raced from the super sprint Arena games right up to Xtri (non-supported Ironman) and everything in between.
I now see myself as more of a custodian of the sport. It has given me so much, beyond my wildest dreams: the adventure, friendships, life experiences, self-belief in pushing my body and mind, the wins, the broken bones. Now I want to pass on all my knowledge and experience I have gained on my journey with everyone in halo ID. How fast you go is not important but moving forward is and learning along the way to finding your NEXT LEVEL.
