Denmark’s Emil Holm has had a busy two years competing in World Cups and on the World Triathlon Championship Series to earn himself a shot at Super League Triathlon glory this autumn.
Living and training in Stevns, south of Copenhagen, with a squad coached by his dad might come as a surprise when he discloses that neither of his parents have a background in triathlon. But Holm says his family is without doubt his biggest inspiration – “Today our life is 100% dedicated to the sport. My sister is on the national team with me, our dad is coaching us, and our mum is the logistics master!” Holm was crowned Danish national champion in 2018 and 2019, and was runner-up in this year’s Nordic Championship in Linköping, Sweden to the home nation’s Gabriel Sandör.
A consistent performer on the World Cup circuit, the 26-year-old also achieved an eighth place in Arzachena, Italy in May, but the result he’s most proud of is a bronze medal in the World Triathlon Championship mixed team relay last year in Hamburg, which followed a 10th place finish the previous day in the individual event. “It was an amazing team effort. Everyone stepped up their game and it gave me huge belief in myself.”
Holm also tries to give back through the sport where he can, and when he’s not competing himself enjoys coaching the young athletes at his local club. The young Dane is looking forward to making his Super League debut, particularly Munich where he competed in August’s European Championships. “It will be amazing here… it’s so beautiful! But all the venues look extremely cool.”
