The Short Story.
After discovering triathlon in 2004, Helle Frederiksen turned professional after graduating from the University of Copenhagen in 2008 with a Master of Science Degree in Physical Education & Human Nutrition. Helle was able to break through on the international racing scene right away with 3 victories at ETU European Cups and a 2nd place best finish at an ITU World Cup. In 2012, the Danish triathlete qualified for the London Olympics, fulfilling her life-long ambition to represent Denmark at the Olympic Games. In 2013, Helle transitioned to non-draft Ironman 70.3 and Lifetime Triathlon racing, with immediate success. In the first transitional season, Helle won the only two Ironman 70.3 races she competed in (San Juan and Miami), won the Miami Lifetime Tri and finished second in no less than 4 Lifetime Tri Series races, ending the 2013 Lifetime Tri Series in the runner up position.
In 2014 Helle Frederiksen showcased her world class ability, winning two of the biggest prize purses in the sport, the prestigious Hy-Vee 5150 Elite Cup and Challenge Bahrain, putting Helle at the top of total prize purse earning list for that year.
2015 saw Frederiksen take the Latin American Championship crown in Brasilia, Brazil and also take a course record at IRONMAN 70.3 Texas. Helle Frederiksen remains one of the most consistent athletes on the international racing scene.

No finish since October 2012 has seen Helle place outside the top 3 in an international competition. To date no female has gone quicker than Helle’s 3:55:50 finish, set at Challenge Bahrain 2014, for the 1.9km swim, 90km bike, 21.1km run, half-distance format.
