Jamie started triathlon after watching the elites train at Loughborough University. Whilst never achieving the great heights of the group, he fell in love with the sport, the variety of training, focus and motivation not just in sport, but in lots of other aspects in life. Studying IT and becoming an IT Consultant working in London, attention to detail is part of his makeup for better or worse!
In 2013 Jamie did his first sprint triathlon at Blenheim Palace, but his real love is now long distance triathlons. The camaraderie from other triathletes is very special with a ‘we’re all in this together’ mentality. Crowd support at long course has helped him learn to put up with the pain.
First competing in a 70.3 IM distance in Exmoor as preparation for IM Wales in 2015, he has now completed 3 Ironman distance triathlons qualifying for the World Championships as a result. He is now frantically preparing for this race in St George later in 2022. With the course rumoured to be very ‘lumpy’, he is looking forward to seeing what lessons he has learnt over the years. A long term supporter of Forth Edge tests, we look forward to watching him fly in 2022!
Jamie is using our Male Triathlete Test to learn more about his hormones, key biomarkers and how this can help monitor his health and training load.
