Jack Willis

Jack Willis has risen through the ranks as a junior with domestic and international honours and has gone onto become a regular on the elite international circuit including at World Triathlon Cups and the World Triathlon Championship Series.

Jack has shown his running strength throughout his swim, bike, run career, racing nationally in cross-country and representing Great Britain as a junior at the 2015 European Mountain Running Championships in Madeira.

He made his international debut in triathlon in June 2013 when he was part of a youth relay team which competed at the European U23 and Youth Championships in Holten, the Netherlands.

2014 saw Jack compete at multiple Junior European Cups throughout the year including a home race in Nottingham where he had his best international finish of the year in 10th. The following year brought the first international medal of his career, winning silver at Junior European Cup Chateauroux in July 2015.

That same month included a podium finish at the British Sprint Triathlon Championships with Jack finishing third out of the junior men.

After ending 2015 with a sixth-place finish at Junior European Cup Tiszaujvaros, Jack was ever-present in the top-10 at Junior European Cups in 2016, including fourth in both Kitzbuhel and Holten, as well as finishing second overall in the British Triathlon Junior Super Series.

There was another junior bronze medal for Jack at the British Sprint Triathlon Championships in 2016.

2017 was Jack’s first year of elite racing at a senior level and included a sixth-place finish at European Sprint Triathlon Cup Funchal.

Jack continued his progression throughout 2018 and recorded a number of top-10 finishes at continental cup events including over the standard distance in Valencia, finishing eighth. The 2017 BUCS champion was selected to race at the World University Triathlon Championships in 2018, narrowly missing out on a medal in the individual race, finishing fourth.

Jack did return from the World University Championships in Sweden with a medal, forming part of the mixed relay team which secured silver. Just over a month later and Jack was part of another medal winning mixed relay team, this time at the European U23 Championships in Eilat, Israel.

After a fifth-place finish in the men’s U23 race, Jack was on the podium in the mixed U23 relay, bringing the team across the line on the final leg to claim European U23 silver in a thrilling sprint finish alongside the gold medal winning Switzerland team.

During another year of continent cup racing in 2019, Jack again represented Great Britain at the European U23 Championships, finishing 18th in Valencia.

The Covid pandemic disrupted his year in 2020, with no international racing for Jack, but it did see him take on Helvellyn Triathlon, regarded as one of the toughest triathlons in the world, finishing third in the race which was won by Alistair Brownlee.

On his return to international racing in 2021, Jack was again a regular at Europe Triathlon Cups, recording top-10 finishes in both Olsztyn (5th) and Barcelona (9th). The same year saw Jack make his World Triathlon Cup debut in Karlovy Vary, finishing 14th in the elite men’s race.

Jack’s 2022 season started in March and went all the way through to November when he made his World Triathlon Championship Series debut at the World Triathlon Championship Finals Abu Dhabi, finishing 32nd.

His WTCS debut came off the back of two top-10 finishes at World Triathlon Cups with his seventh place in Tongyeong being followed two weeks later by fourth in Miyazaki. It was a medal-winning 2022 for Jack who secured silver medals at both Europe Triathlon Cup Rzeszow and Europe Triathlon Premium Cup Holten.
