Tom is part of the UK Sport Lottery Funded British Triathlon Squad. He trains at the British Triathlon Centre in Leeds. Tom represented Team England at the 2018 Commonwealth Games following an ITU World Triathlon Series medal-winning season in 2017.
Tom won his first international race at the Holten ETU Triathlon Junior European Cup in 2008. Over the next ten year’s he progressed from being a promising junior, winning world junior silver in 2010 and world U23 bronze in 2011, to being a consistent performer at the highest level – the ITU World Triathlon Series.
In 2017, he had a dream start to the season, winning his first Series medal in Abu Dhabi and running toe to toe with multiple world champion, Javier Gomez of Spain until the final stages of the 10km run. He picked up three more top ten finishes during the rest of the season and finished seventh overall in the Series.
In 2018, his best individual result was sixth at the AJ Bell World Triathlon Leeds, and he was a valuable member of Great Britain’s Mixed Relay Teams which finished fourth at the ITU World Championships and second at the Mixed Relay World Series event in Nottingham.
In 2016, Tom was a serious contender to support the Brownlee Brothers at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. He was selected as a reserve but did not travel to the Games. He ended the season strongly with a fifth-place finish at the ITU World Triathlon Edmonton in September 2016 - his best ever finish in the Series at the time.
Tom graduated from the University of Leeds with a 2:1 in history in 2013. He has a twin brother, David, who is also an international triathlete based in Loughborough. His mother, Hilary, is also an excellent cyclist.
