Justin Smith - Merthyr Triathlon Club
Welsh Triathlon Inclusivity Award 2021
Swim, bike and run should be an inclusive sport, open to everyone regardless of their background. We want to reward anyone in our sport that is helping to widen access and inclusion whatever their role. This award celebrates the work that community sport and recreation is doing in this very important area. Nominations could include individuals, small groups, clubs or organisations.
Winner – Merthyr Triathlon Club
Congratulations to Justin Smith, chair of Merthyr Triathlon club for winning our inclusivity award for 2022. Justin has gone to great lengths this year to ensure that club members and anyone within the local community no matter what ability or previous experience has the chance to take part in triathlon and multi-sport activity. Justin’s attitude towards inclusivity has shown great leadership in highlighting just how inclusive triathlon is by adapting sessions and meeting the needs of members. Well done, Justin and thank you for being such a great role model for ensuring that triathlon in Wales is as inclusive as it can be. Steph Makuvise, ED&I Lead - Welsh Triathlon
