Josh Jones, 18, took part in a Kids of Steel triathlon event at the age of 12. A dedicated swimmer and runner from an early age, he jumped at the chance to give triathlon a go at a Kids of Steel event in Scunthorpe with his school – and last year became British Age-Group Triathlon Champion.

“Kids of Steel reinforced my love of sport and encouraged me to continue training hard”, said Josh. “Now I’m representing Great Britain at age-group level in the sport I love and I hope to become an even stronger athlete in the future.”
