A 33year veteran in the sport of triathlon, and there’s not much he hasn’t accomplished in those 33 years. A lover of vintage cars, and just like a fine wine, keeps getting better with age….
Name: Steve Gray
Nickname: Sugar (someone has to ask what this is all about!) 😉
Age / Age Group: 50-54
Lives: Echuca, Victoria
Targeted Sport: Triathlon
Years in the Sport: On and off since 1988 so 33 years !
How did you get started: I swam in a team and thought I could tackle the whole thing myself. I was hooked after that.
Why I choose CPC: Have known and admired Sarah and and the way she goes about her coaching for a while and when she moved to Echuca I was glad to have a local coach that could tweak my old way of thinking to ring a bit more out of an ageing body. I only ever had remote coaches so to have Sarah close by to guide me has been great.
What I ‘get’ from my sport: Triathlon keeps me active and being competitive ensures I push myself to train regularly which in turn keeps me engaged socially with my mates. Healthy body and mind. Most of the time 😂
Ultimate Goal: Stay competitive and keep racing and training until I’m very old. 🙂
What I couldn’t live without: A coffee with my mates after a hard training session.
Biggest love: My wife Bec
Pet peeve!: Hoons in loud 6 or 4 cylinder cars
Interesting fact about me: I own a 66 falcon Ute and my wife has the matching 66 falcon wagon.
