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.
George went on to his first Paralympic Games as the youngest member of the paratriathlon team in Rio 2016. He was first out of the water and led during the bike section. He was overtaken during the run, his weakest discipline due to his impairment.
Most athletes in his classification have arm, rather than leg impairments. This means that George usually gains a lead during the swim section of races, but he is at a disadvantage during the run due to his leg impairments. This makes his classification particularly exciting to watch as the faster runners come through in the latter stages.
