Competing in two different sports - George Peasegood, Paralympics GB Cycling and Triathlon

Published on: 17th July, 2021

George Peasegood is going for a unique treble at the Paralympics in Tokyo this summer. George has qualified for the para-triathlon and for the road race and time trial in cycling. He's going to have a mad week in the intense heat and humidity of Tokyo.

George talks about competing in all three events and how he's preparing including time in the heat chamber. He comes across as very laid back about it all in a matter of fact way that makes it sound easy. It's not, of course!

George has been charting his training since January and we wish him all the best with his final preparations.

Thanks for listening!

And what are they learning in the run up to the Games. The Podcast lasts around 10 mins and comes out daily, Monday to Friday. I’m also using it to raise money for Maggie’s Cancer Centres to thank them for the help they’ve given my wife and family during her bowel cancer journey.
