Honour Roll



Over the past 45 years Tony has coached over 1300 athletes and triathletes of both genders and of all ages and abilities. At the elite end there have been medallists in the Asian Games, the Commonwealth Games and the Triathlon World Championships, those who have achieved selection onto Olympic and World Track & Cross Country Championship teams as well as Asian record setters, winners of Australian track, triathlon and duathlon Championships and qualifiers for major non-Track & Field events like the Hawaii Ironman.

Tony began serious coaching while teaching at St Patricks College, Ballarat and it wasn't long before the first internationals emerged. This was followed by a 4 year stint as National Coach of the Philippines. Now Olympians were emerging. On returning to teaching in Australia Tony soon had more elite athletes coming through and this continued during a 4 year period as National Coach of Australia. In 1993 Tony's major focus turned to triathlon and the story of individual success, best seen by checking the menu below, continued until today.

Benson's and 'Run with the Best' (see Home page) is not just a story of the elite however. To say that around 99% of the all the athletes who followed this program for 3 months or more reduced their times by 15 to 30% would not be overstating the situation. In fact personal bests, performing at the top levels of their age groups or divisions and qualifying for prestigious events like the Hawaii Ironman, the New York Marathon and World Age Group Championships are routine.
