Dave Ellis made a return to International triathlon in 2017, winning the ITU Paratriathlon world title in the visually impaired category guided by Carl Shaw. He previous won the title in London in 2013 with Luke Watson. He's a member of the UK Sport Lottery Funded World Class Programme.
Dave has a strong swimming background, having been a member of an elite training group in Derby when he was younger and representing Great Britain in swimming at the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games. His best result was 6th place in the 200m Individual Medley.
He also has a very fast run, making him an excellent triathlete. When men's visually impaired triathlon was omitted from the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, he focussed on track running, which has only made him more competitive on his return to triathlon.
Dave is currently living and training in Manchester.
