Paul has been winning races for some time , But he has had his ups and downs in the sport.
After years of hard work, Matthews is showing why he's a top contender for this years 70.3 World Title.

If you are only just starting to take notice of Paul Matthews a.k.a Barny , it's because he's a quiet bloke from Australia that mostly just goes about his business !!! "Quiet until you get to know him that is "
learn more at or twitter: @paulbarny  and you'll soon know he's a  great guy and a funny character!!

Q: So why is he's having his best year to date ?

A: Without giving to much away, I have been training with Bevan Docherty ( two times olympic medalist and ITU world champion ) If you think racing is hard all you need to do is spend a few weeks with Docherty and then you'll know about pain !!
Paul and Bevan are training out of there not so secret ( yet i'm still not going to tell you ) location .

Q: So whats next ?
A: I'm going to race 70.3 Vineman next weekend and then knuckle down into a training block before hitting 70.3 World Championship in Vegas.

Q : Do you have a goal for Vegas you want to share?
A: Top 3 would be an awesome result for me!!

Q: What do you think of the new course?
A: REALLY hard, REALLY hot , but a great course for me!!

Q: So after Worlds will you be staying in the USA or heading home ?
A: i will be heading back to Australia , i have unfinished business at the Noosa Triathlon ( a huge Olympic distance event ) and then i'll head to the 70.3 Asia Pacific Champs in Phuket

Q: So we hear your success is due to training with Guy Crawford for all those years ( he's the dude writing this )
A: yep ... i enjoyed having Guy sit on my wheel every day for a year!!

Q: Anything else you'd like to add?
A: YES...The dragons ( NRL Team in Australia ) will repeat their grand final victory come october!!!!!

Great year to date Paul , good luck at Vineman and we hope to see you on top the podium at Worlds.
