In 2022 Great Britain's Ben Goodfellow was crowned Ironman 70.3 World Champion in the 25-29 age group. A real transformation for someone who turned their back on sport at 16 and in his own words, got pretty addicted to gaming. In fact it was only during his final year at University in Wrexham that Ben 'Wilf' Goodfellow joined the local triathlon club in a bid to get fit. Little did he know the talent he had lying beneath...He's gone on to be Overall winner at Ironman Staffs 70.3, World and European Duathlon champion, age group winner at 70.3 Swansea as well as Ironman 70.3 Age Group champion.
