COLE has been swimming since he was five and is one of the most confident swimmers at Aqua Force based at the Dyke House pool.
He is part of the Aqua Force 1 squad and is mainly coached by Alison Middleton and Carol Boagey.
In 2013 he came first in the Tri-star Two Category Aquathlon and in late December last year he was invited to join the North-East Triathlon Development Squad.
Cole has since joined Hartlepool Triathletes and trains every Wednesday evening in Jacksons Dock, Hartlepool Marina, during the summer months.
Cole has trained under the watchful eye of Gary Wilson and Matt Turnbull and has regularly completed aquathlons and triathlons.
He wants to keep improving his ability in triathlons by working hard for the season.
