George Miller is determined to climb to the very top in 2020 as he targets a medal at the ITU World Triathlon Grand Final in Edmonton, Canada.

The Oxford-born triathlete, who now calls Bondi Beach in Australia home, has spent the past three years competing for Great Britain in age-group races.

But the man who conquered Mount Kilimanjaro in 2012 has dreams of battling it out at the sport’s highest level and he believes the trip to North America in August could be the perfect springboard.

George, a dhb ambassador, said: “I have represented Great Britain as an age-grouper for the past three years.

“My goals are to podium at the 2020 ITU World Triathlon Finals and to also start racing as an elite triathlete later in the season.

“I am motivated by seeing improvements. The human body is a fine machine and I enjoy seeing how far we can push it.”

George is thankful for the huge support team he has – both around him in Sydney and back at home in the UK.

He reckons the triathlon community is like no other, having been introduced to the sport little more than three years ago.

And will continue to document all the highs and lows of his journey on his Instagram account @iamgeorgemiller

He added: “I am lucky to work for a company (BlueChilli) that supports me in reaching my goals outside of the business.

“We have one of the best flexible working environments I have ever witnessed and are encouraged to find ways that help us do our best work.

“I have made some lifelong friends through triathlon and continue to enjoy welcoming new faces to the sport every single week.

“I am not ashamed to say I am massively competitive. I push myself, my body and my mind to the limits and enjoy reaping the rewards.

“But outside of training and racing I am passionate about sharing my journey with like-minded individuals through the power of social media.

“I frequently post and pride myself in being very open, honest and transparent with those who follow my progress. You will not find any sugar coating at @iamgeorgemiller!”

George is no stranger to pushing himself to the limit. His ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro for charity seven years ago opened his eyes to the importance of mental strength.

The Brit said: “The gruelling five-day hike to 5,895m is without a doubt one of the most physical tests I have put my body through.

“Altitude sickness, muscle fatigue and dehydration were rife and despite being physically fit, this hike drained me mentally.

“It was the first time I had to think about mental ability, not just physical strength and endurance.”
