Ian Rooke

Head Coach
After competing at club and county level swimming in 2007 I was looking for a new challenge, so I took up triathlon. Since 2007 I have competed in many UK triathlons ranging from sprint up to half ironman 70.3. I joined Kingfisher Triathlon Club in 2010 and started sharing my knowledge as a coach. In 2013 I qualified as a British Triathlon Foundation level 2 coach. My coaching back ground is with swimming, I also lead and coach the running session at Kingsmeadow. My greatest achievement within triathlon is breaking 5 hours in a half ironman 70.3

Maarten Sollewijn Gelpke

Coach
I started my more serious triathlon career in 2003 when I joined a club in the Netherlands, started working on my virtually non-existent swimming skills, and since have been doing about 10 races every year. In 2010 I moved to the UK and joined Kingfisher Triathletes. In 2014 I started coaching at Kingfisher. I usually coach at the Monday swimming session and lead the Sunday morning club bike ride.
Since 2015 I also do triathlon personal coaching of a few athletes.
