Scott has been involved in Triathlon specifically for 8 years, which has seen him race, train and live internationally with some of the world’s best triathletes and coaches (Craig Alexander, Tim Reed, Tim Berkel, Rachael Joyce, Leanda Cave and Dave Scott to name a few). 

Scott himself started out in long distance triathlon racing and has competed in the ITU Long Course World Championships and 70.3 World Championships.
