Team Sky have appointed Australian Shaun Stephens as performance coach for the 2013 season. Stephens, 37, is regarded as one of the world's best triathlon coaches and recently worked as head coach to the Australian national team at London 2012.
He will leave his current roles as head coach and programme manager at the Australian Institute of Sport and Triathlon Australia to work alongside Team Sky's head of performance Tim Kerrison in a full-time capacity. Stephens has a background in sport science. He has coached junior and elite athletes throughout the last four Olympic cycles.
He said: "I'm looking forward to contributing to the team and bringing in new ideas through my sport science and coaching knowledge of triathlon."
