Member since 2011. Focus is competing and assisting the head coaches and “newbies”.
Active triathlete and coach. Dave only took up triathlon in 2011, and originally only did one “for a laugh”. Was a nationally competitive swimmer and basketball player in his distant youth and has played rugby to a very high standard before injury in his early 20s stopped that. More recently has coached tae-kwondo and is a blackbelt, stopping only when he realised he was “half decent for his age” at triathlon.
Has represented Great Britain at sprint distance at the AG World Championships and has completed Ironman races, including Ironman Wales. Has made many mistakes in triathlon and is still learning and is still searching for that “Perfect Race”. Loves competing and the bigger the race the better. Loves swimming and riding, hates running!
Dave has two children, one of which is a junior member, and the other will be once she can swim 50m.
To assist the head coaches at both adult and junior sessions and to pass on my mistakes so beginners don’t make them.
