Athletes Men › Aaron Royle
Aaron Royle’s triathlon career was born at the age of 14 when he refused his parent’s demands to choose between swimming and running and instead found a sport that allowed him to add another discipline into the mix. Aaron was born and grew up in Newcastle in New South Wales, Australia, and enjoyed the typical outdoor lifestyle. His first love was for the water, and it didn’t take long for him to start to find his way in competitive swimming. By the age of nine Aaron was already winning State medals in both butterfly and freestyle.
Aaron decided to give running a go as well and found he could excel at both at the same time. He collected State and National medals at cross country and on the track while still at school. It was the demand from his parents that he had to pick between his loves of swimming and running and concentrate on just one that drove him towards triathlon.
Luckily, it turned out that Aaron was a natural on the bike as well and in next to no time he was delivering at a high level, including medals at the Australian All School Championships. After leaving school Aaron decided to move to Wollongong to work with coach Jamie Turner and strive for a career in professional triathlon. The gamble paid off.
Aaron was crowned Under-23 World Champion in 2012 and then started to break into the elite ranks. He was third at WTS Auckland in 2014 and picked up a bronze medal as part of the Australian Mixed Relay team at the Commonwealth Games in 2014.
WTS podiums followed in 2015 and 2016, leading to Aaron being selected for the Rio Olympics. In the men’s event he produced a strong display to finish ninth having been fifth at the test event. Aaron was part of the Super League Triathlon season in 2019 and picked up top-ten finishes in both events, including sixth place in Jersey.
Aaron is now coached by Joel Filliol. His fiancee is British triathlete Non Stanford.
