Matt Fisher Triathlete & VP of Marketing

Matt Fisher - Elivar Featured AthleteMatt kick started his athletic career after his 36th birthday. Wanting to embrace a healthier lifestyle Matt started running. It wasn’t until 2010 when he decided to compete in his first triathlon. A year later Matt was named to the Great Britain Age Group team. As VP for Marketing with an international software company Matt tries to find a balance between a working life that involves travel and training around 13 hours a week. In an ideal week Matt also tries to work on individual Triathlon elements. 

2017 will see Matt continue to build this year as he recovers from a big crash late last year, with the 2018 World Champs the medium term target. A good result at Westonbirt Triathlon (1st Vet40) and some new Time Trial PBs - "finally under 58 for 25 miles" - point to steady progress on the road to full speed. However the 'big' race is the Cotswold Classic middle distance in August - the same one Matt crashed out of last year in August. Then the National Relays will close out the racing goals for the year.
