Athletes Women › Vicky Holland
Vicky Holland was something of a latecomer to triathlon but has certainly made up for any lost time with an Olympic medal and a World Championship title on her stellar CV. The Gloucester born Brit was a brilliant swim talent as a youngster before turning her attention to running.
But it wasn’t until she was studying at Loughborough University that Vicky discovered multisport after being scouted by British Triathlon. Her progress from there was rapid.
While still at University, she finished fourth in the Under-23 ITU World Championships in 2009 and just two years later was taking gold at the Wellington OTU Oceana Championships to really cement her place amongst the world’s elite. Vicky’s progress was being fast-tracked by British Triathlon, and she was named on the Great Britain team for the 2012 London Olympics, where she finished 26th. Two years later, she became one of the sport’s biggest hitters when she took an individual bronze and Mixed Relay gold as part of a Team England squad also featuring Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee and Jodie Stimpson at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
Vicky’s first WTS win came in 2015 in Cape Town before adding the Edmonton title to her name to finish fourth in the World Series and qualify for the Rio Olympics. It was in the warm climbs of Brazil that she achieved true triathlon greatness with a fantastic race seeing her involved in a sprint finish with her friend, teammate and former housemate Non Stanford, which she narrowly took to collect a coveted bronze medal.
Her most consistent season came in 2018 as Vicky secured WTS wins in Cape Town, Leeds, Edmonton and Montreal, and seconds in Bermuda and the Gold Coast Grand Final to collect a first World Title. Vicky has twice raced Super League Triathlon Jersey and, in 2019, put in a battling display in tough conditions to finish fourth.
After competing at the Tokyo Olympics, Vicky finished fifth in the Super League Triathlon 2021 Championship Series which included third place in an all British podium at the opening event in London.
Vicky now lives and trains in Bath. She is coached by her husband Rhys Davey.
