Athlete in Profile: Steve Gray

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.
