At an early age Tom found a love for Gymnastics, and by age 12 was representing South Africa on the international junior scene. He was awarded his National Colours many times after that, competing successfully both locally and abroad.

In 2016 Tom discovered the sport of Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) – it was love at first sight! In 2017 he managed to place 2nd at the OCR World Championships in Canada, and in 2018 stepped out of his comfort zone and took to the mud of “Toughest Mudder Texas” – an 8-hour, through-the-night, multi-lap, obstacle course race that lives up to its name as one of the “Toughest” OCR races out there.

Then, as if that wasn’t enough, in 2022 Tom broke two Guinness World Records at Mount Everest – the World’s Highest OCR & the World’s Highest Marathon – all on the same day! This placed him 2nd in the Altitude OCR World Championships! To hear the full story, click here.
