Sam Dickinson

Leeds based Sam Dickinson is a member of the UK Sport Lottery Funded World Class Performance Programme. In 2018, he won a silver medal in the U23 event at the ITU World Championships.

I swam and ran from an early age with my older brother, Tom. We both saw the London Olympic triathlon and gave it a go in 2013.

Two years after his introduction to the sport, Sam was the British junior champion and topped the table at the British Triathlon Super Series in 2015. In 2016 he won silver at the ETU European Championships and represented GB at the ITU World Championships. 

In 2018 he won silver in the U23 elite race at the ITU World Championships on the Gold Coast.

Sam is originally from York, but now lives and trains in Leeds, where he is part of the Leeds Triathlon Centre and coached by Liam O'Neill. He's studying Sport and Exercise science at the University of Leeds.

Sam's older brother, Tom, also represents the Great Britain Age Group triathlon team. They both competed on the Gold Coast at the ITU World Championships in 2018. They played every sport from county level hockey to basketball shoot-outs in the back garden whilst growing up. His dad was a reluctant swimmer, preferring to play water polo, captaining the combined services water polo team. His mother was a county level gymnast.
