Bio...

George is part of the UK Sport World Class Lottery Funded British Paratriathlon squad. He competes in the PT4 category and is coached by Steve Casson at the British Paratriathlon Hub in Loughborough.

George suffered a traumatic injury to his left leg/ankle when he was two and a half years old. He has had several reconstructive surgeries, and leg lengthening procedures at Sheffield Children's Hospital. He has reduced range of movement, his left leg is longer than his right, and his left foot is three shoe sizes smaller than his right. He has zero inversion/eversion movement in his left ankle.

He got into triathlon in 2009 following his leg lengthening operation. Two years later in 2011 he was classified as a Paratriathlete at a British Triathlon Talent ID day. In 2013 he won his first major medal, a bronze at the ITU World Championships in London - at 17 years-old that made him the youngest paratriathlon medallist ever.

George comes from a family of high-achieving triathletes. His brother Jack, who is five years older, has represented the Great Britain Age Group team at both triathlon and duathlon. His mum has completed ten consecutive London Marathons and his dad got into triathlon following a running injury. Both parents have completed Ironman triathlons.
