About Me

I am a self-coached amateur triathlete who took up triathlon in 2012. In 2016 I won a European bronze medal in the ETU Sprint Duathlon in Kalkar, Germany. In 2017 I qualified for the Ironman world championship in Kona, Hawaii, achieving a long-time ambition.

I started recreational running whilst at university in 2005 as a means to get fit and limit the size of my belly. Later that year, I ran my first half marathon (the Robin Hood Half Marathon in Nottingham), finishing with a time of 1 hour and 53 minutes. I enjoyed my first race and, gradually over time, got more into running. In 2010 I joined my first running club (Serpentine Running Club).

I completed my first sprint triathlon (Blenheim Triathlon) in June 2012 after deciding to try a new challenge with three friends. I loved the training and racing and was soon hooked. I went on to complete my first olympic and half-ironman distance races in 2012. In 2013, I completed my first ironman distance triathlon at The Outlaw in Nottingham.

I joined the Wimbledon Windmilers (London’s most friendly and welcoming running club!) in 2014 after meeting many of the club’s members through my girlfriend who has also been a club member for a few years.
I’m now enjoying the challenge of triathlon more than ever, seeing how fast I can become.
