Simon Ward, The High Performance Human Triathlon Podcast

Being from Yorkshire makes you tough * Dominic Coy

August 31, 2022

It gives me great pleasure to observe the success of Yorkshire triathletes, especially when I've watched them from a young age, and then see them progress to the international stage. First, it was the Brownlees, then Jess Learmonth, and now this week's podcast guest Dominic Coy.

Dominic started out as a junior member of my own club Leeds Bradford Tri and progressed up to the Yorkshire Academy. After leaving school he went to University in Cardiff and is part of the triathlon squad, training there with Coach Luke Watson. Just a few short weeks ago Dom represented Wales at the Commonwealth Games in both the individual race and the team relay where he won a silver medal with his 3 teammates including Non Stanford. Dom clearly has a bright future so it’s a great pleasure to chat with him today as we cover:

  • The benefits of being a triathlete in Leeds
  • Moving to Wales
  • Typical training schedule 
  • Commonwealth Games
  • Can he make it on the big stage?
