Sam Dickinson is based at British Triathlon’s Performance Centre in Leeds, with his performances in 2021 earning him a space as a reserve for Tokyo.
In June, Dickinson made his World Triathlon Championship Series debut in Leeds, with his home city providing the best setting for his maiden race at that level.
Dickinson crossed the line 22nd having split off from the pack to lead the race towards the end of the bike leg. Find out more about the tactics behind his race in the interview below.
Following on from Leeds, Dickinson headed out to Kitzbühel in Austria for the 2021 Europe Triathlon Sprint and Relay Championships. In the individual race he finished as the fastest Brit to come home 7th and won relay gold alongside Sian Rainsley, Olivia Mathias and Gordon Benson.
With the 2020 Tokyo Olympics featuring individual and mixed relay racing, Dickinson was selected as a reserve athlete by British Triathlon alongside Gordon Benson and Sophie Coldwell to travel with the team to Japan.
