What is your best strength in triathlon?
My run is going well at the moment.
How did you get into triathlon?
I swam competitively for a while, and ran a little before being introduced to the sport at local level. I won my first triathlon and thought I'd give it a go. After about 6months to a year I decided to take it up as my main sport.
