What’s your sport of choice?
Cycling followed by running and swimming… yes, you gue
When and how did you discover the sport?
Back in London in the ’80s I used to commute to work by bike and my competitive instincts got the better of me when other cyclists overtook. So I bought a racing bike and started to train, then joined a club and started to race properly. And I got into triathlon from there.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Love: Every day you spend unhappy with someone you don’t love is a day wasted with someone you really love.
Business: A ‘no’ is as good as a ‘yes’ as it allows you to move on.
Life: ‘I can resist everything but temptation’ – Oscar Wilde
