“I’m too young for a lifetime achievement award!”

At just 32 years of age, Jonathon Riall has already successfully lead the British team to the debut of triathlon at the Paralympic Games.

The Head Coach of the British Paratriathlon Team, Jonny was been part of that journey since the beginning, working for British Triathlon since leaving University and soon after that becoming the guiding light for Paratriathlon in Great Britain.

His often unseen contribution to the sport in this country is huge, but was recognised this week when he was announced at the winner of the Jane Tomlinson Award for Outstanding Contribution to Triathlon in the annual 220 Awards.
