Matt Fisher, Age Group Triathlete

Welcome to my world!

NEW SITE ALERT:  An all-new Triathlete's Diary is being developed over on www.triathletediary.com. Take a look! 

 

My name is Matt and I'm an amateur triathlete - possibly just like you! Since starting my triathlon journey in late 2009, I've become a complete convert (read: addict!) to the sport. I'm also a husband, father & full-time worker, so fitting it all in is by no means easy!

In recent years, I have represented Great Britain as part of the amateur Age Group teams at ITU & ETU championships in Ireland, China, New Zealand & the United Kingdom. I then moved on to middle distance racing and qualified twice for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships.  For 2018, however, I've returned to low-key local racing due to work pressures.   The good news is that local racing can be just as much fun as the high-profile international stuff.  

I've been lucky to have some time in the 'blue suit', but I've also been jaded by it & the ridicule it brings from certain corners of the triathlon community. So now my personal goals are twofold: 1) to put enjoyment above accolades, 2) to be the best triathlete I can given that it must fit around the rest of my life, not dictate it!

I've also recently started a new version of my diary, which you can find over on www.triathletediary.com. Much of the content from this site has been updated and ported over to that site and that's where you'll find my latest blog entries

Thanks for stopping by!
