Cameron Watt

Cameron Watt is a former Professional Ironman having trained under Brett Sutton beginning in 2002 and competing in races throughout Australia, Europe & North America. After retiring from Ironman in 2009, he crossed over to Cycling, becoming Manager and Director Sportif of the highly successful UCI Continental Team BudgetForklifts. Cam is based in Brisbane, Australia.

In 2002 I was given the opportunity to join Brett’s (Sutton) elite squad, learning first hand his training methodology and principles. After my own racing career I put these lessons to good use in my Cycling team to great success. Having been involved in the sport of triathlon for over 23 years I have experienced all aspects from beginner/junior to professional, from sprint distance to Ironman, from athlete to coaching the full spectrum.

Coach Cam Watt

 

I started my sporting life swimming, before doing my first triathlon in 1992. Since then I have competed in over 100 races over the world with a career highlight including a professional win at the Ironman 70.3 distance. Throughout my time in sport, I have had great opportunities to train under some of the world’s most successful coaches across a variety of disciplines.

I have previously coached and held training camps for Australian Age Group triathletes in which multiple World Championship Olympic Distance, Long Course podiums and Kona slots were achieved. I have also worked with athletes towards achieving much more varied goals, such as becoming first time Ironman finishers.

I’d like to draw on all lessons learnt and my experiences over two decades in multi-sport and cycling to help guide you in achieving your own personal triathlon goals.

The Blame Game

“If you haven’t the strength to impose your own terms upon life, you must accept the terms it offers you.” T.S. Eliot If you’ve ever listened to athletes talk about their performances after an event or write about them in their “race reports” posted on social media,...
