Barry has competed as a triathlete for 24 years.

Since then he has represented Great Britain at World / European Triathlon and Duathlon Championships finishing consistently in the top 3 podium positions. 

After achieving so much he wanted to give something back to the sport and became a BTF Level 3 Coach.  He founded a local triathlon club for juniors and seniors and within 2 years had 200 members. His coaching skills were soon recognised and he has been mentoring Level 1 and Level 2 coaches in numerous clubs in the Northern area. He helped set up other clubs in the Region and promotes the sport of triathlon in schools and Leisure Centres. Barry also involved in Try a Tri sessions and Open Water Swimming for junior and seniors throughout the Region.  As North East Academy Head Coach and Talent Identification Officer in 2008 – 2009 he guided talented children to represent the Region and now are competing for Great Britain at Junior Elite Level.
