Will Clarke

Active in swimming and athletics since the age of 7, Will Clarke became a triathlete at 16. He subsequently built a successful career in short distance triathlon, becoming world and European U23 champion in 2006, and British champion in 2008 and 2009. He also qualified for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, finishing 14th. In 2012, Will was ready for Ironman racing. His goal: to become the first British pro male to win the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii. He has gotten off to a good start, wrapping up 2013 with a 10th place in the World Championships Ironman 70.3 in Las Vegas and a second place in the Ironman 70.3 races in St. Croix and Lanzarote. In 2014, he succeeded in finishing second in no less than four 70.3 races: South Africa, San Juan, Barcelona and Calgary. On June 15 2014, Will did even better by winning his first 70.3 title in the Ironman 70.3 UK! If that is not enough, he also won the Ironman 70.3 of Lanzarote after an exciting race. An 8th place finish in his debut Ironman in Lanzarote and a 4rd place finish in IM 70.3 UK, 2015 didn't bring the results he hoped but under the wings of new coach Luc Van Lierde Will hopes to show his full potential as a long distance triathlete again in 2016.
