Adam Madge - Athlete Ambassador
Have you always been into sport?
I started in sport at a very young age as a track runner. Moving up the the distances from 800m to marathon running then in 2015 I decided to give triathlon a go and I’ve never looked back.
How did you first get into triathlon?
I have always been a fan of triathlon but was never the best swimmer so didn’t really have the guts to give it a go. A friend talked me into go along to my local tri club swim session and with their support and coaching I have developed my swimming and confidence in the water.
What has been your favourite race to date and why?
I have been lucky enough to race some amazing races but my favourite is probably 70.3 Dubai. I have raced it twice now and would love to go back a third time.
What is your proudest achievement?
I am very proud of all my achievements but probably the one I’m most proud of is qualifying and competing in my first age group world Duathlon championships just 1 year after starting out in the sport.
How do you overcome setbacks?
As an athlete you have many ups and downs and I think the best way to cope with the downs is take a step back and remember why we do sport because we love it.
What advice do you wish you'd been given when you first started out?
One thing I wish I'd been told when starting out is to be patient, Rome wasn't built in a day.
What are your goals?
My goals going forward are to get back to a good level of fitness this winter and hopefully get back on the podium again in a few races next year.
