TIME TO BE AWESOME WITH SAM HOLNESS

“I’m a triathlete that just happens to have autism. And I’m going to be awesome.  

Most people don’t understand autism. If I can show people that someone with autism can be a successful triathlete, then it will motivate people.  

Autism is an advantage. I am very focused, and I’m not easily distracted.  

I want to show that people with autism can participate in sport. In fact, autism is a strength and athletes from any background can be great triathletes. All you need to do is get out there and get active. Don’t let your disability be a reason for not doing sport.  

I enjoy doing triathlons because it gives me confidence and improves my self-esteem.”

I thought ‘no, someone appreciates my ability, why don’t you let me go?’ I think that it’s my own decision that I need to keep going and need to run. “
