Meet your committee for the 2012-2013 academic year! If you are new to triathlon, or just want to find out about the club then it's probably best to email Hannah, Marie or Oli.
Last thing – join the OUTriC facebook group to meet the rest of the club (or just come to training!).
Hannah Johnston Pembroke
Hannah came into triathlon a strong swimmer, a sport where a sprint was less than 30seconds long. After the slight setback when the realisation sunk in that a sprint triathlon would take almost an hour and a half, she went to wiggle.co.uk to console herself, and has since never looked back. Now known for her jazzy and colourful swimming costume selection, Hannah's biggest achievement has been finishing second helpings of Tim's infamous curry on training camp (see below).
Oliver Zeldin St Cross
Not the most natural endurance athlete, but tries hard. Oli's main contribution to the club so far has been a valiant attempt to introduce the thriller routine as a club victory dance (still in progress...).
Also provides epic 80's inspirational rock/pop punk for turbo sessions.
Marie McHugh University
Another medic doing triathlon?? Oh yes. Loves the swim and the run, opinion on the cycle depends on how windy it is. Also loves the lycra onesies (good enough to rival those rowers) ...but loves her team mates most of all :)
Treasurer, Alumni Officer and Long Distance Secretary
Tim Creedon St Hugh's
A dedicated triathlete for over 3 years now. My illustrious career highlights include; costing OUTriC a race against Oxford City Tri by stopping for an ice-cream mid race, breaking my wetsuit zip 5 minutes before the start of an Ironman race and cooking the world's hottest curry on our Portugal training camp.
My motto: Look good, feel good, go faster (and pose for the photographer).
Ex-oarsman and current cyclist from Canada (where moose victory salutes are mandatory) he had an absolute blast in his first season of triathlon; any sport which justifies three seperate types of sports gear must be good! Goals for next year include practicing this whole "T1" thing and getting one of the invisible propellers some people seem to have in the pool!
George Heppel Mansfield
Born at a young age and much smaller than he is today, George soon tackled walking and talking. Now, despite joining triathlon thinking he was going to ‘try’ some sport called ‘athlon’, he manages to run, swim and bike! As social secretary, he will nobly continue in his wingman function, making the rest of the team look better by comparison at social events.
Press Officer, Alumni Officer
Ben Greenfield Has only just realised that slow and steady will not infact win a race.
Sam Banner Oriel
Sam begun triathlon in April 2011, from a background of running/cycling and doing anything outdoory.
Having overcome the barrier of not being able to swim much more than 50m frontcrawl, he's hoping it's all downhill from here.
