About Dave Williams

Dave Williams returns to the team as co-title sponsor. We are thrilled to have him on board again this year as both an athlete and team sponsor. Along with running a busy coaching business and training himself, Dave also trains many of the TMS-IOS team members. Dave manages to impress us at every race, despite his limited training time. Have you ever seen this guy swim? And he'll tell you he doesn't have time to the hit the water much. Woe to every competitor if he did! Imagine being "out of shape" and too busy to train and still making it to Kona or Olympic Distance Tri Worlds year after year! We again look forward to his likely podium performances throughout the season in the IONCTS, and at Tri Worlds and IM Austria later this summer.
