Holly Lawrence’s win at the Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Mooloolaba was the high point of a breakthrough year that saw the Welsh triathlete win three titles over the half distance.

Given Holly’s background in swimming and cross-country running, she was targeted for development in pentathlon alongside her brother. After she raced in a triathlon at age 16, however, she discovered a sport for herself. She raced on the British circuit and was a member of a French Grand Prix team while studying for her university degree. In 2014, she was invited to race on the British team for the European championships.

Holly moved up to the non-drafting 70.3 distance in 2015, which played better to her strength on the swim and bike. Her win at Ironman 70.3 Oceanside and a second-place finish on the hilly Ironman 70.3 Mont Tremblant were indicators of her potential, which she has since made good on.
