Steve Chisnall, an Officers’ Association (OA) Trustee and former Air Vice-Marshal, is cycling for the OA in the OA Inter-Services Triathlon at the end of July. We interviewed him to find out more.
This year the triathlon is organised by the RAF Triathlon Association and sponsored by the OA. The Army, Navy and RAF will compete at the annual event, in individual and team categories, including Male, Female and Veteran. In addition to the Armed Forces, the emergency services, the OA and guest teams will participate. The OA will have a relay team, with a different person completing each discipline.
I retired from the RAF in 2008. I am currently a lecturer in International Relations at the University of Southampton. I have enjoyed playing many sports all my life. In particular, soccer, squash and rowing, which all provided a good foundation for triathlon events.
