Spencer Smith, National Coach
Spencer Smith is a triple World Champion triathlete turned triathlon coach and one of only a handful of athletes to have consistently succeeded on the biggest stage at both short and long-course distance triathlon. At the age of 20, Spencer became the youngest-ever World and European Champion. He was then the first male triathlete to win consecutive Senior World Championships (1993 and 1994) in addition to his Junior World Championship in 1992. Interestingly, he is also one of the very few champion triathletes to have raced in the highly-competitive world of professional cycling, where he spent the 1999-2000 season with the Linda McCartney team before reverting back to triathlon, proving his adaptability by winning Ironman Florida in a record time and coming 8th in the Hawaii Ironman World Championship within a year of his return. Recently, Spencer was recognised by the British Triathlon Federation (BTF) for his outstanding contribution to the sport, and was awarded the very prestigious BTF Golden Pin. In recent years, Spencer Smith has retired as an athlete and spends all his time coaching multi-sport athletes through his company, S2Coaching.
