Chairman – Lee Francis
I've been an active member of Kingswood Tri Club since I was a teenager; first representing the club at Springfield Sprint Triathlon in 1999.
I have a lot of experience in triathlon after being part of the club for so many years, including sprint, olympic, middle distance and long course. Over the last 10 years I have completed 9 Ironman events, and with much hard work and determination I have reduced my time from over 14 hours at my first attempt in 2005, to my current PB of sub 10 hours. My dream is to one day qualify for and race Kona.
I have tried many different techniques over the years, changed my diet and concentrated on training consistently, but most importantly, I have learnt from my mistakes and never been afraid to try again. I am always happy to talk to people about their training, give advice when required and share some of my experiences.
I have been club Chairman since February 2014 and have seen the club grow and move forward. I love seeing the hard work people put in to the club and their training, and find it incredibly rewarding when people get a result in a race or smash their PB.
