Hi! I’m Dan Wilson, I was a professional triathlete and represented Australia for over a decade on the ITU circuit at World Championships and Commonwealth Games level. During the last 2 years of my career, I switched to the non-drafting 70.3 distance and won 8 of my last 11 races, finishing with the Asia Pacific 70.3 Championship title last year.
In addition to my triathlon career, I’ve got a degree in Applied Science, and more recently completed my Bachelor of Behavioural Science (Psychology). At the moment, I am completing my PhD in Clinical Psychology at Griffith University in Brisbane. My research area uses a biological model of personality to investigate Eating Disorders and associated behaviours, and in my ‘recreational’ research I enjoy looking at the current evidence base looking at the role of fructose in metabolic syndrome.
On the side, I still enjoy keeping fit, although with far more moderated levels of physical activity than my professional years. I also have a small coffee roasting company with fellow triathlon Pro Josh Amberger, where we are redefining the definition of how small micro-roasteries can actually be….
