Ben is a member of the UK Sport Lottery Funded World-Class Performance Squad and trains at the Loughborough Triathlon Performance Centre.
Ben won double gold for Team GB at the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games as a fifteen year-old. He won individual gold in a photo finish with New Zealand’s Daniel Hoy, and was part of Team Europe in the Mixed Relay.
He won junior gold at the ITU World Duathlon championships in 2015. In 2016 he won world triathlon championships elite junior bronze, despite only being 17 in an under 20 category. He repeated that again in 2017 in Rotterdam and then made his Super League debut in Jersey. Much of 2018 was written off through injury.
But 2019 was a different story for Ben with the Loughborough-based athlete winning silver at the Quarteira ETU Triathlon European Cup in April and two months later he was part of the British Mixed Relay team that won gold in Nottingham. Ben would feature heavily on the podium in September, with a 2nd place finish in the Mixed Relay at Lausanne being followed by two gold medals in Valencia at the U23 European Championships.
As well as representing Great Britain in triathlon, he is also a record breaker on the athletics track and has raced internationally at cross country.
Ben first started in triathlon as a ten-year-old after reading a triathlon magazine. He was already involved in cross country running.
