Scottish Cycling, Running & Outdoor Pursuits Show

Marc Austin LIVE

Join Marc at the Show Theatre at 1.30pm on Saturday 2nd and 3pm on Sunday 3rd March

Marc Austin is a member of the UK Sport Lottery Funded World Class Performance Squad and trains in Glasgow. Marc won Commonwealth Games bronze on the Gold Coast in 2018. He is now full time and training in his hometown Glasgow, having studied Mathematics at Stirling University whilst training with the Scottish National Team.

Marc’s first passion was running, and he took up swimming to boost his fitness. From there he entered the Stirling Aquathlon at the age of 11. After finishing in second place, he turned his attention to triathlon.

Marc had a very successful junior career, winning numerous continental cup junior medals and a silver at the ITU World Championships in Hyde Park in 2013. The following year he won World U23 silver in Edmonton and had a memorable performance at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, where he was part of a three-man breakaway with the Brownlee brothers. Although he was eventually dropped, he won over the local crowd in Strathclyde Park and showed his potential for the future.

At the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Marc secured Scotland’s first medal across any sport. He won bronze behind Henri Schoeman, the Olympic bronze medallist from South Africa, and Jake Birtwhistle of Australia. Afterwards he described it as the 'performance of his life.'
