Vicky Holland at the Triathlon Show: London 2017

Great Britain’s Vicky Holland achieved a sporting dream in 2016 at the Rio Olympic Games, winning the Bronze medal, following a head-to-head sprint finish with her great friend and long-time training partner, Non Stanford.

We spoke to Vicky at the weekend while at the Triathlon Show: London 2017 at the ExCel Centre.

During the interview we cover:

  • Her Olympic memories, six months on.
  • The ‘surreal’ feeling of an Olympic podium.
  • The contrast between ‘supporting’ at the Olympics and being a medal winner.
  • Meeting the Queen!
  • Leaving Leeds and re-locating to Bath.
  • Being “selfish” as an athlete.
  • Why she has no interest until long distance… until the week before Kona!
  • Working with High5 Nutrition

Watch the video above to find out more about Vicky’s plans over the next Olympic cycle.
