THIS IS ME
In a successful few years, I have been progressed from having the honour of representing Great Britain at elite (Aquathlon) and age group level at the World / European Triathlon Championships. Recent highlights include being selected to represent Great Britain at elite level at the World Aquathlon Championships, winning several national age group championships, three times Cornwall Series Champion.
Last season I built upon the above qualifying for the 70.3 World AG Championship in Australia finishing a credible 4th place 30-34yr, was a reasonable finish having led for 90% of the race.
On returning to the UK I entered Ironman Barcelona with 3 weeks and little prep time to go, and boy did it go well finishing in 8hours46mins winning the AG ranks and qualifying for Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.
This year my main aim was the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. The first step was a 2.34 London Marathon, winning a couple of half Ironman’s all on the road to Kona. My goal was definitely to be looking to build on my experience at Ironman, but definitely looking at getting on the Hawaii Podium. I got up to 2nd place on the run until I hit nutrition problems, I was throughly pleased to fight all the way on the marathon finishing in a great 19th Place in my second ever Ironman.
Being a top level athlete within Cornwall I have built a healthy relationship with local media, this has helped me feature regularly in local papers and their online presence such as facebook and twitter, giving any potential sponsors a great base to feature and promote your business and brand. I would like to develop a successful, mutual relationship with any potential sponsors and help grow your business in any manner I can.
I am a School Games Organiser (PE Teacher) and triathlete from Cornwall. I have a passion for sport and inspiring future talent. At Mounts Bay Academy school I run a high performance programme for our talent sports pupils, additional training, mentoring, and timetable flexibility for the national and international athletes.
I currently balance 16-25 hour training weeks around my day job, in the past I have received the Cornwall Ambassador scheme allowing me to utilise the facilitates and hopefully this will again allow me to train at the swimming pool.
I am happy to provide any more information required
Goals & Ambitions
In 2018 I am aiming to again qualify for the Ironman World Championships at Ironman Lanzarote one of the hardest races in the world, then in October tackle the Kona (Hawaii) beast once again and this time reach my podium potential, hopefully the gold medal.
