Qualify and compete at the Triathle World Championships for GB.

I am 35 yrs old and from Northern Ireland. I compete in Modern Pentathlon (fencing, swimming, riding, running and shooting) and Triathle (running, swimming, shooting) for GB. I am a relative newcomer to the sport taking it up at 30, an age most people expect you to retire from it, not start it. But I am super excited to challenge myself in a new way, in a new sport and to get more experienced. I am currently europe's number three in my agegroup 30-40 in pentathlon and I am the current british Triathle champion. So I am on a pretty good way.

I work full time as a legislative researcher and I want to encourage others to have a go at those things you talk yourself out of trying because "I don't have time" or "I'm too old to take up something new".

"You only fail if you don’t try. Do more than you think is possible!"
"To be the best version of myself possible and to inspire ordinary people to do extraordinary things."
