Round Table Great Britain and Ireland is pleased to announce that George Peasgood will be speaking at their National Conference this weekend.
The association for men aged 18-45 is holding its AGM in Cardiff on Saturday and will invite 20-year old George to speak about his athletic achievements.
George is part of the UK Sport World Class Lottery funded British Paratriathlon squad and trains in Loughborough.
George suffered a traumatic injury to his left leg/ankle when he was two and a half years old. He has had several reconstructive surgeries, and leg lengthening procedures at Sheffield Children's Hospital. He has reduced range of movement, his left leg is longer than his right, and his left foot is three shoe sizes smaller than his right. He has zero inversion/eversion movement in his left ankle.
He got into triathlon in 2009 following his leg lengthening operation. Two years later in 2011 he was classified as a Paratriathlete at a British Triathlon Talent ID day. In 2013 he won his first major medal, a bronze at the ITU World Championships in London - at 17 years-old that made him the youngest paratriathlon medallist ever.
He will speak at the Conference on Saturday which will see the handover of the National Presidency from Nottingham based businessman Marcus Jones to Southend-on-Sea’s Mark House.
Marcus Jones is delighted to have George speak at the AGM,
“I often describe Round Table members as the ‘ordinary guys doing extraordinary things’ and in George we have yet another example of a young man doing just that.
George epitomises many of the values we hold dear at Round Table and we look forward to welcoming him to Cardiff on Saturday”.
