Vincent Luis is one of the new breed in triathlon, strong across all three disciplines. What sets him apart is the ability to close on a win when he gets within striking distance with his brutal finishing kick in the final discipline of the sport. His position at the top of Super League Triathlon and World Triathlon Series rankings is testament to his versatility when the distances, the courses, and the disciplines are varied.

 

Debuting on the Bahrain Endurance 13 team in 2019, the Frenchman made a strong statement clinching the 2018-2019 Super League Triathlon series championship at its Grand Final in Singapore. He then placed no lower than 6th in all his World Triathlon Sereis races including a win in Yokohama, setting him up to finally take the world title he had come so close to winning in 2018. Despite the dearth of racing in 2020 Vincent was there when it mattered, earning his second world championship win at WTS Hamburg.

 

A junior world and European champion as well as the top French triathlete, this two-time ITU world champion is now gunning for Olympic gold in Tokyo in both the individual and mixed relay events.
