He was at the event to launch the Be More Bailey Triathlon which is designed for children who either have a disability or who just need a little bit of extra confidence. The event will have no timing, placing and is one where everyone gets a medal. Bailey said of his triathlon, “I want children like me or those without the confidence to complete a triathlon."
