Russell White entered a local triathlon as a break from competitive swim training and won the race. That sparked his interested in competing in triathlon and he was later selected as a member of the Irish Squad following a trial at one of Triathlon Ireland’s Talent Identification Days in 2010.
White made an almost instant impact following his switch to the world of multisport including a victory at the London Junior Elite Triathlon. Russell went on to the senior ranks with his debut in the World Triathlon Series in 2014 and finished 18th in the U23 World Championships.
Since then, Russell has trained hard and has been a strong competitor, most recently placing 15th place at the 2017 ITU World Triathlon Grand Final Rotterdam.
