I live in whitecross and i am 17 years old, i am studying sport in newry collage,I started training this time 2 years ago when I was 15 years old and by the time summer came I bought myself a wetsuit and started to swim in camlough lake.
When and why did you start triathlon?
When I joined the triathlon club in 2014, I was made to feel very welcome and was given lots of encouragement and praise which made me want to keep doing the sport.
I liked the variety of all three disciplines, but I think I preferred cycling the best of them all, I joined camlough cycling club and was given lots of encouragement from them and that’s when I started the Tuesday night racing league with newry wheelers.
My first triathlon was 2014 crooked lake, I placed 3rd in my age group and I recieved a bronze medal.
Favorite event to date?
My favourite event to date was crooked lake 2015, I will never forget that morning looking at the lake at how rough it was but I managed to knock off 13 minutes from the year before and beat the oul fella.

What does Newry triathlon club mean to you?
I enjoy going to the training sessions throughout the week and meeting all the members who make me feel very welcome. Without the help of David Burke and Milo McCourt I feel I wouldent have pushed my self as much.
