Stuart originally came from a swimming background, swimming with the Hounslow club close to where he grew up in Twickenham London. Stuart was reserve for the Olympic Games in Athens 2004, where his wife & coach Michelle Dillon finished 6th place in the women’s Triathlon event.

It might have been a long time coming after 17 years since starting this sport but the dedication training & racing Stu has put in has paid off this time and he is thrilled to have made the team for London.

Stuart has won many major races around the world including his breakthrough win in a WCS race in Kitzbuhuel Austria in 2010, he was also ranked no 11 in the world in the same year.

Stuart has also won many major international races to date including The British Championships, London Triathlon, Chicago Triathlon, Malibu Triathlon, Windsor Triathlon & Blenheim Triathlon just to name a few.

Stuart said “ I am so happy I am lost for words, I have always been striving to go to an Olympic Games and was my dream from when I began my career, however I have had so much bad luck or it just wasn’t my time for the last three Olympics. I almost quit the sport so many times through frustration & injury. They say everything happens for a reason, this is my time. I am really looking forward to competing along side Alistair and Johnny, who are the best guys in the world in front of a home crowd on August 7th!”

Born and breed in London, it will be the pinnacle of Stuart’s career to date to race in front of a home crowd at the London Olympic Games. Good things do come to those who work hard, so please what ever you do DON’T EVER GIVE UP on your dreams and goals!!!
