George Peasgood

George is part of the UK Sport World Class Lottery Funded British Paratriathlon squad. He competes in the PTS5 category and is based at the Loughborough Triathlon Performance Centre. He represented ParalympicsGB at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.

George suffered a traumatic injury to his left leg/ankle when he was two and a half years old. He had several reconstructive surgeries, and leg lengthening procedures at Sheffield Children's Hospital. He has reduced range of movement, his left leg is longer than his right, and his left foot is three shoe sizes smaller than his right. He has zero inversion/eversion movement in his left ankle.

He first started triathlon in 2009 following his leg lengthening operation. Two years later in 2011 he was classified as a Paratriathlete at a British Triathlon Talent ID day. In 2013 he won his first major medal, a bronze at the ITU World Championships in London - at 17 years-old that made him the youngest paratriathlon medallist ever.

He went on to his first Paralympic Games as the youngest member of the paratriathlon team in Rio. He was first out of the water and led during the bike secion. He was overtaken during the run, his weakest discipline due to his impairment, and finished seventh.

George is one of the fastest swim-bikers in the sport. He often leads out triathlons, but his leg impairment means that others in his classification have the opportunity to catch him... if they can.

George comes from a family of high-achieving triathletes. His brother Jack, who is five years older, has represented the Great Britain Age Group team at both triathlon and duathlon, and has guided visually impaired paratriatheltes in international events. His mum has completed ten consecutive London Marathons and his dad got into triathlon following a running injury. Both parents have completed Ironman triathlons.

As well as triathlon, Georege has also represented Great Britain in paracycling and won a UCI Time Trial World Cup Silver in 2018.
