Matt was born and raised on a small farm in Lisbon, NY. When Matt was 8, his mom became ill with ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease. Throughout the five years that she battled the disease, he learned many valuable lessons from her, including how important determination and carrying a positive attitude are. After jumping into the sport of duathlon, he dipped into the triathlon world and quickly excelled. Matt has raced in over 45 full IRONMAN events and is now one of the top American athletes. At the 2017 IRONMAN World Championships Matt was struck by a vehicle during the bike leg and suffered potentially career-ending injuries. After battling back, Matt has regained his place at the top of the sport.
