2011 & 2012 World Champion
|DOB||05 May 1973 (age 40)|
2010 and 2011 Tata Steel British Triathlon Male Paratriathlete of the Year
Steven was born in Kings Langley, Hemel Hempstead and spent much of the 1990s travelling. He visited places such as Canada, America, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. It was a trip to San Francisco that introduced him to triathlon through watching the ‘Escape from Alcatraz’ Triathlon. He said: “I was so impressed that I got my photo taken with the winner ‘Mike Pigg’. Maybe this experience planted a seed in my head?”
He is a member of Sheffield Triathlon Club and Killamarsh Kestrels, a local running club with a range of runners at different levels. He is a member of the 2012 British Triathlon Paratriathlon Performance Programme.
“In 2009 I set myself a challenge of completing a triathlon, even with my disability. BTF were a great help in classifying me and entering me in the paratriathlon British Championships. My dedicated and painful training for this event paid off when I won the Gold medal in my category. Due to the enthusiasm of the other paratriathletes and the BTF staff that I had met and talked to, I was persuaded into competing in the other three events of the year including the world Championships…I was hooked.”
“My disability is due to a car accident that happened in 2002 where I got both of my legs crushed and was told I may never walk again. I compete in TRI 3 – (Les Autre) and my profile is ‘20’ which states I am able to walk and run but both legs are impaired which effects each discipline in the triathlon.
“The ultimate will be to win the Paralympic gold medal in the Rio games in 2016. Game on!”
“My family are a very sporty. My late Dad played Rugby Union at a very high level and my Mum trained to teach dance. My Brother and Sister are also very active with my brother excelling at distance running.”
