World champion and two-time Olympic medallist, Georgia Taylor-Brown MBE was destined to pursue a triathlon career after being brought up by an athletic family. 

Her father, Darryl Taylor, represented England in the 800m while her mum swam at national level and ran for Sale Harriers, meaning two of the three disciplines were in her blood. 

Georgia started swimming from the age of five before taking up running seven years later, with her refusal to choose between the sports leading her down a path that ended in triathlon. 

A successful trial with the British Triathlon Olympic Development squad was followed by plenty of promise at junior level as she won medals on the European and world stage. 

Injuries halted her progress but she made her senior breakthrough in 2018 and was crowned world champion in 2020 before winning individual silver and mixed team gold at Tokyo 2020. 

Her Twitter bio (‘all you need is faith, trust and a little pixie dust’) was particularly apt in her individual Olympic success after overcoming a puncture in the bike ride to finish second.
