Latest news about Russell White

Russell White entered a local triathlon as a break from competitive swim training and won the race. That sparked his interested and he was later selected as a member of the Irish Squad following a trial at one of Triathlon Ireland’s Talent Identification Days in 2010.

White made an almost instant impact following his switch to the world of multisport including a victory at the London Junior Elite Triathlon. Now in the senior ranks White made his debut in the World Triathlon Series in 2014 and finished 18th in the U23 World Championships.

While Rio may be coming too soon for White he will be looking to build his ranking to give himself an outside chance of qualification.
