Sam started triathlon back in 2010 prior to leaving for university to study Sports Coaching. After only a few years in the sport Sam had already won multiple British Triathlon and British Universities Championship titles and competed for Great Britain at the World University Championships in Brazil where he placed 13th.
After coaching full-time at a school from 2016-2019 he made his return to elite racing in 2019 with a 3rd place at Challenge Lisboa, his first middle distance start as a professional athlete. Most recently he placed 3rd at the PTO supported Outlaw Holkham Half event and had a career best result of 7th place at the Challenge Championship. In 2022 Sam will be looking to continue his successes both on a personal front and with his coached athletes.
