Bio from his Site- https://www.precisionhydration.com/pages/about-us
In my slightly younger days I was an elite level triathlete and have a few top-10 Ironman and 70.3 finishes to my name. I also won an Xterra World Age Group title back in the year 2000. Knee surgery forced me out of competitive triathlon a few years ago, but I still compete for fun at events like Coast to Coast New Zealand and OtillO. I mainly get away with this because my incredibly supportive wife Lucy (and 2 kids) agree to pretend that these trips are in fact family holidays.
I’ve got a degree in Sport and Exercise Science and was once the Team Sports Scientist for Benetton and Renault F1 teams.
I learned about hydration and electrolyte replenishment the hard way, by getting things very wrong and ending up in the medical tent of more than one hot endurance event. It took a lot of frustrating trial and error to get to the bottom of my hydration problems. But it was worth it, as Precision Hydration was essentially born out of this struggle.
