Simon Ward, The High Performance Human Triathlon Podcast

Chasing Greatness with Barrie Shepley

August 24, 2022

I've chatted to a few guests who have been in the triathlon world a long time - Dave Scott,  Mark Allen, Bob Babbitt, Sarah Springman, and Steve Trew to name a few. But none of them have been at as many seminal triathlon occasions as this week's guest. Canadian Barrie Shepley may be better known to you as the commentator of the WTS TV coverage but there is way more to him than just that. At different times he’s been President and  National Coach of Triathlon Canadian as well as a race announcer and now author. In today's show, we catch up with him about his triathlon life and talk about some of the inspirational characters who feature in his new book, ‘Chasing Greatness’.
