Sprint - Podium Potential

Ieuan came onto the Podium Potential programme in 2016 and has now relocated from Scotland to Nottingham to train at the National Water Sports Centre.  

Ieuan only competed in his first international championship in 2016 at the Junior World Championships. In 2017 he became K1 200m European Junior Champion and a month later became K1 200m World Junior Champion, Great Britain's first World Junior Champion for 22 years. 2018 saw Ieuan move up to Under 23 events and he also raced at Senior level at Sprint World Cup 1 in Szeged, finishing 16th in the men's K4 500m race.
