Vicky Holland

Vicky is the reigning ITU World Champion and Rio 2016 Olympic bronze medalist. She is a member of the UK Sport Lottery Funded World-Class Performance Squad based in Bath, coached by Rhys Davey.

In winning bronze at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Vicky became the first British woman ever to win an Olympic triathlon medal.

Vicky’s triathlon career began at Loughborough University and showed early potential with a 4th place finish in the U23 event at the ITU World Championships on the Gold Coast in 2009. 

Taking her career full circle, she returned to the Gold Coast in 2018 to secure her first senior world title after a season long battle with USA’s Katie Zaferes, who finished as runner up for the title.

On route to winning the 2018 title, Vicky won ITU World Triathlon Series races in Montreal, Edmonton and Leeds. However, she had to overcome a year of injury, which saw her miss the whole of the 2017 season.

In 2016, Vicky became the first British woman to win an Olympic triathlon medal. She finished behind Gwen Jorgensen (USA) and Nicola Spirig (SUI), narrowly outsprinting her friend and team mate, Non Stanford for the bronze medal. 

The previous summer she had won bronze in the Rio Olympic test event, securing her selection for Team GB. 

Her senior career was arguably lunched at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games where she won individual bronze Team England win gold in the Mixed Relay. The confidence gained from these performances provided a springboard for later performances. However, she also competed at the London 2012 Olympic games in support of Helen Jenkins and finished 26th.
