Jodie Stimpson

Team Dillon coached Jodie between 2008 and 2012.

I have been in triathlon since I was 9 years old and Michelle Dillon was a name that every one knew in the triathlon world! Mish was the athlete I wanted to become –  she was the best triathlete not only on the Great Britain team but worldwide. She was the athlete that everyone feared on that start line and to have that power is untrue. The race is never over, which is just one of the many things I have learnt from Mish.

In Michelle’s training programme I am finding new limits that I never knew I had in every session, as every session you push your body and mind to higher boundaries! Michelle’s training is definitely hardcore, but so is triathlon and it’s not for the weak-hearted, but I love it!

Michelle is the most determined, strong-minded person I know, which gives me such motivation. For the first time I’m actually feeling like a runner and have improved so much in all three disciplines in the short space of time training under Michelle.
