Formerly a baker in his hometown of Perth, Eric Watson relocated to the Kingdom of Bahrain in 2014 to become a full-time professional triathlete. Eric is also a competitive long-distance runner, claiming the win at the 2013 Geraldton Marathon. Even as an age grouper, Eric was a lightning-fast swimmer, exiting the water 5th overall at the 2012 Ironman Western Australia. He will put his swim talent to use for a good cause, tackling the 31-kilometer Khalid bin Hamad Swim Challenge across the Gulf of Bahrain to raise funds for the Bahrain Cancer Society to provide care for their patients and family support.
