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.

Since those early days he has grown into his role as coach to ITU athletes such as Lisa Norden who won a silver medal at the 2012 London Olympics Games and is 4 x World Champion.

The coaching was excellent and despite being seasoned runners we found it very informative and useful to have new input and ideas. We thought you handled the broad ability range very successfully so that no one was left out everyone felt included. We both thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would definitely come again

As a parent it is so refreshing to see Adam as such a positive role model and how committed he is to his sport, and I really appreciate the time he has taken out of his busy schedule - you all must have been exhausted by the end of the week. Meeting Adam and being coached by him really made Louis' summer and he enjoyed all the coaching both in and out of the pool. You have my full respect for allowing so many children the opportunity to experience these clinics.
