After a traumatic injury to his left leg/ankle when he was two and a half years old, George underwent several reconstructive surgeries during his childhood.
George comes from a sporting background, with both of his parents completing Ironman triathlons amongst other achievements, and George first started triathlon in 2009. In 2011 he was classified as a para-triathlete at a British Triathlon Talent ID day.
In 2013 he won his first major medal, a bronze at the ITU World Championships in London, making him the youngest para-triathlon medallist ever at the age of 17.
He is set to compete at his first Paralympic Games at Rio 2016 as the youngest member of the GB triathlon team.
