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.

A New Years Resolution for all!

As we head into a new year some of our athletes ask 'coach, what would be a good resolution for me to start the new year with?’ This starts me thinking on how many people have the same dilemma? Why a dilemma? Let’s not delve into it too deep, however deep enough for...

Exceptional performance craves repetition

In 2018 I have returned to coaching a group of age group athletes as well as a team of new pros. The last 4 years had seen me back off and run some educational camps, and a group of predominantly Swiss athletes. However now I’m immersed again in squad training, one...
