OWAIN MATTHEWS, TRIATHLETE
Discovering a love for athletics at high school, Owain Matthews has competed at an international level in running and triathlon for over 15 years.
His first opportunity to run professionally for Great Britain was in the 3000m Steeplechase against France and Russia in 2004. Following on from this, he competed internationally in 5k and 10k road races for Wales, and in 2007 was 2x Welsh Champion, winning the Welsh 3000m indoor and outdoor track titles.
Owain transitioned to triathlon in 2012 when he moved to Australia and has competed at numerous triathlon events and Ironman World Championships for the past six years. He was the 2016 Ironman 70.3 World Age Group Champion M35-39 and was also named Balmoral Triathlete Club Triathlete of the Year in 2013, 2015 and 2017.
Owain's upcoming events include the ITU Age Group World Championships on the Gold Coast in September and the Ironman 70.3 World Championships in France in 2019.
As a triathlon coach, Owain is looking forward to giving advice and training tips leading up to the Mini-Mos, and will also compete in the 10k and alongside his kids in the 2k on Sunday June 16.
