Trent is the latest of 3 generations of the Wood family that have accomplished athletic achievement. John Wood, Trent's Grandfather, represented Australia in the marathon at the Empire Games (now the Commonwealth Games) of 1938. John qualified for the Games by winning the Australian Marathon Championships in 1937. John came 6th with a time of 2hrs 58mins, which back in 1938 was an extremely competitive time. His achievements were emulated by his son Ken, Trent's Dad, who participated in distance running and cycling throughout his life. Ken was committed to these sports with daily training.

Starting his athletic career in primary school, Trent won numerous school based cross country championships which propelled him to NSW State and Australian national championships ranging from 1500m – 5000m track. He was a consistent winner in many events. Success propelled him to achieve numerous state and National Cross Country titles throughout his late teens.
He has represented Australia at many international cross country and track events, including being the representative at the World Duathlon championships in 1999 in Huntersville South Carolina USA, and Calias, France 2000. Trent continues to compete and train; persuing his interest in road cycling and continuing his love of Duathlon.

Trent has sustained his involvement in athletic pursuits with work in the sports industry, working with sports apparel distibutors and manufacturers, advising on the suitability of the apparel for the sport it has been designed for.
