2021 was a breakthrough year in the senior ranks of triathlon for Connor, including national and U23 European medals as well as representing Great Britain in the mixed relay at World Triathlon Championship Series Hamburg.
Connor 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.
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.
Connor is a former county and schools’ champion for his age group in cross-country, while his successes on the track include a bronze medal for the 3000m from the 2019 English Schools’ Championships.
