Summary

Born in 1986 Dan began racing in the Elite ranks in 2011. 

As a youngster he won country and National medals in the 200 & 400 Individual Medley (IM) as well as representing his school on the soccer, rugby, athletics & cross-country teams. In his final year at school he qualified to represent Jersey at the Youth Commonwealth Games in Australia and won Gold in the 400 IM and Silver in the 200 IM.

Dan swam in the Commonwealth Games but the disappointed of finishing 9th inspired him to move over to triathlon.

Dan’s first experience was in short distance races and impressively finished Top10 in his first ETU race and got the Silver medal the World Aquathlon Championships in Budapest.

Inspired by his new coach at Team TBB, Dan moved from short course to Ironman he won his maiden victory at Ironman UK in 2012.

Coaching

Dan was awarded Scholarship to Coventry University and studied Exercise Science

When preparing for an event Dan recommends doing what the coach tells me and get a good nights sleep 2 night out.

His favourite quote is: Cant substitute time out on the roads for anything else

His cycling tip to the cyclists of all levels, get out no matter the conditions.

Dan said he can't do wthout his iPod or water so both are in his transition bag.

I attended a Tri-training camp in May 2018 with the goal to improve my swimming technique mainly. I enjoyed all the sessions which are run mostly at low intensity, but what really makes the difference are all the tips and advices given by Matt and Martin. Thanks guys, highly recommended!

I found the Masters of Tri triathlon camp in Alicante, Spain, excellent. It surpassed my expectations! The training volume is perhaps on the low side but learning is incredibly relevant and helpful. Simple yet innovative way to learn how to have more fun training and meet ones objectives at the same time! On top of that great way to socialize and meet fellow athletes from the UK, Switzerland and Sweden to name a few.

Chili Leisure Triathlon Camp

Karen brought me from Zero to Hero on my Ironman journey. I had never completed a triathlon and so had a lot to learn. Karen taught me and trained me with patience and motivation. She gave timely weekly plans that reflected my other commitments and enabled me to have a balance between training and work. Karen was always available for me to speak with and was able to answer questions that I had. She gave advice on nutrition, bike set up and maintenance, to name but a few. I visited Karen's training camp on a number of occasions. The facilities are great, she has an endless swimming pool that I could use as well as lots of strength and conditioning equipment. I would highly recommend Karen, she is very knowledgeable and passionate about training. She made me feel very comfortable and confident that I would achieve my goal.
