Alison Peasgood

Alison is a two time Paralympian and won a silver medal in Rio. She also has multiple European and world titles to her impressive paratriathlon CV. She is currently on maternity break from the sport having given birth to a son in 2023.

She came from a swimming background and was crowned IBSA World champion over 800m and also represented Scotland as a runner before she transitioned into paratriathlon in 2013. Her debut came in 2014 and she recorded a bronze medal at Yokohama ITU World Paratriathlon Event before claiming the World Championship alongside guide Jenny Manners.

The following year she secured automatic qualification for the Rio Paralympic Games as she won the Test Event, also becoming European Champion just a month later.

In 2016 she retained her European crown and became world champion for a second time in three years after finishing second in 2015. Her quest for the three major titles in the same year took her to Rio but she settled for the silver medal with her guide Hazel MacLeod behind Australian duo Katie Kelly and guide Michellie Jones.

She won just one of her three races in 2017 but returned to form in 2018 as she was once again European champion before ending the year with another silver medal at the world championships in Australia. She regularly medalled in 2019 securing a gold and silver medal at ITU World Paratriathlon Series events in Milan and Montreal respectively.

Having qualified for the Tokyo Paralympics, Alision narrowly missed out on a second Paralympic medal as she finished fourth. That came after she started the year with a bronze medal at AJ Bell 2021 World Triathlon Para Series Leeds Presented by Volvo, and a win at World Triathlon Para Cup Besancon.  She won in Besancon again in 2022 after taking home a silver medal at the European Championships. A DNF at the Commonwealth Games followed before she ended the season with a bronze medal in the world championships.
