James Beckinsale has helped me to unlock my potential, through his knowledgeable and intelligent approach to training and technique, and his excellent motivational skills. Before I started training under James 2 years ago, I had reached a plateau. I was getting good results (multiple top 10 places at major championships), but I knew I could achieve more with the right support, and I had an ambition of winning an international medal. With James’ support, after two seasons of continuous and significant improvements in my performance, I achieved that goal in 2010, winning the bronze medal in my age group at the EuropeanDuathlon Championships, and enjoying the experience of leading the race onto the final run.
