About me
Sport Billy - enjoy snowboarding, golf and triathlon. The harder the better, 'you must be mad !' comments make me even more determined.

I started running in 1999 and did my first triathlon in the same year. In 2000 I did the FLM and then the Longest Day iron distance race. I even shocked my then coach who expected me to be at least 2 hours later!

I then snapped my knee ligaments skiing. I recovered after a few months with no surgery needed (I don't have an ACL in my right knee) so started playing a bit more golf and changed to snowboarding, this lasted 2 years. Then in 2003 I started again, completing the IMCH and the Austrian IM in 2004.

Ironman target: To set a PB.
