Behind the Athlete

Passion | Persistence | Perseverance.

"The world of professional sport isn’t an easy one. It’s a full-time commitment requiring personal sacrifice and a dedication to preparation." Jack began to develop his  work ethic at a young age, spending time outside school and on the weekends training and practicing in pursuit of his ultimate goal: to compete at the top level as a professional triathlete.

His short term goals are to establish himself at the regional Continental Cup and World Cup level over the next 2-3 years before being able to successfully compete in the WT Championship Series or in the exciting new PTO series.

 

Jack was selected by Triathlon Australia and the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) as a Categorised Athlete for the Olympic pathway program. This was not only a recognition of his performances to date but more importantly his potential for the future.

 

When Jack is not training as a fulltime triathlete and juggling part-time jobs to support his training, he is studying part-time at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) doing a double degree in Data Science and Business Marketing.

Jack was born in 2004 and resides in Brisbane, Australia. Growing up Jack loved playing all sports but particularly cross country, track running as well as football. From this Jack found his passion for competing but even more so – racing. During his school years, outside of sport, he also held several key leadership roles which have helped to further develop him as a person. When triathlon found him in 2014 it soon became his favourite athletic endeavour.

​As of 2022 Jack has won multiple National Junior triathlon titles and is now looking forward as he transitions this success onto the world stage where he can take on the best of the best.
