Georgia is a member of the UK Sport Lottery Funded World-Class Performance Squad. Originally from Manchester, she moved to Leeds in 2012 to study for a degree in Sports and Exercise Science at Leeds Beckett University. She trains at the Leeds Triathlon Centre.
Georgia showed huge potential as a junior, winning European and World medals as well as athletics medals. She persevered through years of injury to make her senior breakthrough in a major way in 2018 with ITU World Triathlon Series overall third place.
Her first ITU World Triathlon Series podium finish came with silver at the AJ Bell World Triathlon Leeds in June 2018 followed by bronzes in Edmonton and Montreal.
Georgia enjoyed a promising 2019, taking her maiden World Triathlon Series race win in Leeds, a silver medal in Montreal and a bronze in Lausanne. She was also part of the British Mixed Relay teams that won gold in Nottingham and silver in the ITU World Triathlon Mixed Relay Series Tokyo.
Georgia is a former double ETU European Junior Champion, having won gold in 2012 and 2013. She also won the ITU Junior Duathlon World title in 2012. In Hyde Park in 2013 she claimed ITU Triathlon Junior World silver and won bronze the same year with the Great Britain & Northern Ireland relay team at the IAAF World Cross Country Championships.
Georgia’s dad, Darryl Taylor, represented England for 800m on the track with a best time of 1min 48secs. Her mum swam at national level and ran for Sale Harriers.
Georgia has been swimming since she was five and started running when she was 12 and was selected to run for her school. Not wanting to choose between the sports, she looked into triathlon and had a successful trial with the British Triathlon Olympic Development Squad.
