A leading triathlon coach and commentator, Steve has been in the game forever. You’ve probably heard his dulcet tones commentating on televised triathlons. You can reach him for coaching advice and details of his training camps at trew@ personalbest.demon.co.uk.
Our columnist Amy is an age-group long distance triathlete and a world champion qualifier in both ITU and WTC racing. She documents her triathlon success in both her Triathlon Plus column and on her website, amykilpin.co.uk.
News editor Fiona started running 15 years ago, but after seven marathons (and constant injury) she switched to triathlon and has managed to remain pain-free. She’s completed various distances, including a half-Ironman and overcame a terror of clip-in shoes and open water in the process. She completed her first Iron-distance race last year.
