Triathlete, Jack, approached the RGF last December to help fund the purchase of an indoor smart turbo trainer to help him train over last Winter. Jack’s goals are to compete at the 2026 Commonwealth Games and Olympics.
He is clearly making great progress and has been in touch with a progress report. He told us:
“Over the course of the last four months I have been travelling and training extensively all over the world, living out of a suitcase. Initially, I flew to America for a big training camp specifically set up to prepare for the racing season. This was led by my American based coach Ryan Bolten and fellow training partner Dan Dixon. I spent three weeks training in Santa Fe, New Mexico, adjusting to altitude and toughening up in extreme weather conditions!
“I then headed across America to Tucson, Arizona for the rest of the America camp. Here I participated in two races, The Super League Arena Games Triathlon in Montreal, Canada where I came 3rd in the professional race, followed by a race in La Paz, Mexico where I came 12th in the professional field.
“After more training in Tucson I made my way back to London for the World Championship of the Super League Arena Games. Competitors included an Olympic Bronze Medallist and a multiple Ironman World Champion. I managed to race well making the semi-finals. I then travelled to Portugal to train at Villamoura to prepare for my next race in Carole, Italy inMay.”
Keep up the great work, Jack!
