Biography

English triathlete who is part of the Great Britain Olympic team and is a 2-time World Mixed Team Champion. As of 2012, Holland is 1.68 metres (5 ft 6 in) tall and weighs 59 kilograms (130 lb).

While at school Holland was a nationally ranked swimmer before moving to athletics and taking up the 1,500 metres. She didn't begin competing in triathlon until her second year at Loughborough University when she was approached by British Triathlon.

Holland was selected to represent Great Britain at the 2012 Summer Olympics in the women's triathlon alongside Helen Jenkins and Lucy Hall. Holland completed the course in two hours, two minutes, and 55 seconds, 26th in the field.

In 2012 and 2014, Holland became World Champion as part of the British Mixed Team Relay squad, and on 24 July 2014, she secured her first major individual medal, with Bronze at the Commonwealth Games. Holland took gold in the mixed triathlon team relay at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, with the Brownlee brothers, Alistair and Jonathan, and Jodie Stimpson.

In April 2015 Holland took her first victory in the World Triathlon Series when she won the Cape Town round of the 2015 Series. She followed this up with a second World Series victory in Edmonton and third place in the Grand Final in Chicago which gave her fourth position overall for the year and qualification for the British Olympic team in Rio 2016.
