Dan Hoy

TRIATHLON

What's your full name?
Daniel Hoy

How long have you been competing  in your sport?
3 1/2 years

Where do you call home?
NZ now but I'm originally from the UK.

Favourite event or place to practice your sport?
Training on the gold coast.

What is your focus within your sport (what sub-discipline of your sport do you do most)? Why do you like that aspect the most?
I work the hardest on my swimming -- that's been a weakness from the start because I came from a running background. Running is my favourite because it comes a lot more natural than the other two ... but I still love all 3.

What is the strangest thing that has happened to you while doing your sport?
When I raced the Takapuna tri in 2013 I cut my toe warming up ... then someone rode into me coming out of transition ... then I went down again round a U turn. It was a day of bad luck, I think.

Notable recent results?
2014 Youth Olympic silver medalist triathlon; 3rd U19 Oceania Triathlon 2014
