|DOB||24 Jan 1983 (age 33)|
Andy came to triathlon in 2013 via the Triathlon England Talent squad. He quickly broke into the UK Sport Lottery Funded Great Britain Paratrithlon Squad and now spends much of the year training full time in Loughborough.
Andy is a through the knee amputee (right leg) having been involved in a motobike accident when he was 16. At the time he was applying to be part of the Army Parachute Regiment and was an excellent cross country runner for Gloucestershire. He spent months in hospital, and his leg was initially saved, but he later had it amputated when he was 22 due to a number of problems with it.
Now as a triathelte, running remains a major strength and he uses a high quality running blade as well as prostetic leg on the bike.
He competed in his first triathlon in April 2014 and by the end of the season achived a gold medal at the Madrid ITU World Paratriathlon Event. In 2015 he won a medal at the Rio Paratriathlon Test Event in the PT2 classification, which will be included in the Rio Paralympic Games in September 2016.
