The 19year-old now looks to the biggest stage in the Tokyo Olympics 2020. The Hong Kong native Oscar Coggins started playing in mini triathlons at 14 he also got the Osgood-Schlatter disease, in young kids, it’s a common cause of knee pain. Fans from all over the world who want to watch the live-action can buy Olympic Triathlon tickets online.
“It was a huge issue, I wasn’t thinking about quitting or anything as I wasn’t hugely invested in the sport at that age anyway. But for about a year, my first year of doing triathlons I had knee issues.”
And then just as quickly as the knee pain started, as is often the case with Osgood-Schlatter disease, it stopped. Coggins wasted little time in his first triathlon at 15 pain-free completing 4rth in a local tournament against athletes as old as 19. Coggins said it was definitely a watershed moment for him when it comes to triathlons which contains a 1.5 kilometer swim a 40km bike ride and a 10km run as per Olympic length.
“I also felt like, ‘OK, I’m OK at this too.’ I wasn’t doing a lot of training at that time, and I thought, ‘I’m not very far off these guys.’”
By the end of 2014, Coggins had made the U20 Hong Kong National Team and found himself progressively getting better and enjoying triathlons more. He was already training with 26 Coaching, the best training group that specializes in running, swimming and triathlons and had developed a close-fitting social network with some of his friends also in the sport.
“Even without the results, I really started to enjoy the sport, it’s definitely a really demanding sport and I really enjoy that about it. Just the level you have to push yourself to be good at it.”
Coggins, who has 190 centimeters height, did not get the attention; though, as in 2015, he came second at the Hong Kong National Championships. The 16-year-old boy was Competing against men of all ages, made a push for gold and was suddenly on everyone’s radar. He then covered the year off with a second-place finish at the New World International Triathlon in Hong Kong, once again lining up in the best male category.
“That was really a big race for me, I’d had some sporadic results throughout that year. So it was really good to start putting everything together and have a good overall performance.”
