Connor became the World U23 and British elite national champion in 2022 and has continued to develop in the international stage since stepping up in earnest to the senior ranks during the 2023 season.
He made a winning start to 2023 by taking gold at the Europe Triathlon Cup Olsztyn, before representing Team GB at the Krakow European Games where he finished 32nd in the individual race and won silver in the mixed relay.
First making his mark on the international scene with individual and mixed relay golds at the ETU Triathlon Youth European Championships in 2018, the triathlete from Crewe has also demonstrated his running ability in athletics.
The 2021 and 2022 seasons were breakthrough years in senior triathlon for Connor. He started 2021 with silver at the National Sprint Triathlon Championships, before international medal success followed later in the year, claiming the bronze medal in the U23 Men’s event at the Europe Triathlon Sprint and Relay Championships, where he finished ninth overall.
After competing in his first standard distance triathlon in the U23 Men’s race at the 2021 World Championships Finals Edmonton, Connor represented Great Britain in the mixed relay at the World Triathlon Championship Series Hamburg.
Connor had the anchor leg for the British quartet, bringing the team across the line in sixth during his World Triathlon Championship Series debut. His first senior international podium finish followed in October 2021 when he secured silver at the Europe Triathlon Cup in Barcelona.
The following year was a turning point for Connor in terms of his approach to racing. Recovering from injury, in August 2022, Connor became the British elite triathlon champion after claiming victory at the British Triathlon Super Series Grand Final in Sunderland.
After top-25 finishes at the World Triathlon Cups in Tongyeong and Miyazaki, Connor added the world U23 title in November, winning gold in the men's U23 race during the World Triathlon Championship Finals in Abu Dhabi.
