Vicky Holland is the first British woman to capture an Olympic medal in triathlon, outsprinting compatriot Non Stanford for the bronze medal in a thrilling showdown at the Rio Olympics. She  is the 2018 World #1 after a stellar season that saw her win three World Triathlon Series races and take the podium in another two after spending the previous year recovering from injury.


Scouted by British Triathlon while at university in 2005, Vicky had previously been a nationally-ranked swimmer and runner. She was selected for her first Olympics in 2012 to support Helen Jenkins in London and also figured in Great Britain’s mixed relay world championship win that same year.


Her breakout as an individual athlete came in 2014 as she won a bronze at the Commonwealth Games alongside a mixed relay gold. Vicky really hit her stride in 2015, winning WTS Cape Town and Edmonton and taking third in the Rio test event and WTS Grand Final -- a prelude to her bronze medal-winning performance in Rio 2016.


Bahrain Endurance 13 is proud to support Vicky as she ramps up her campaign to qualify for Tokyo 2020.
