“Never give up, no matter what challenges you face. Accept the challenge and rise to the occasion.” - Coach BakerHe is a firm believer that triathlon is not just about the individual competing, but the social and support of those closest to us. It is a social sport with strong, supportive culture full of friends, family and loved ones that enrich the entire experience.
