Emil Holm


Emil Holm stands out as one of Denmark's premier short-distance triathletes, competing both individually and in mixed relay events. Emil's journey into professional triathlon began in 2009 when he entered a local race on his father's old bike, and had to be accompanied by his mother due to his young age. His passion for triathlon was ignited, and in 2012 he entered his first international race.

2023 was a standout season for Emil. He secured 5th place at the European Championships in Madrid, where he had the unique experience of running alongside his childhood hero, Jonathan Brownlee. He followed that with another 5th, this time at the World Cup in Rome in 2023, and a 4th at Ironman 70.3 Bahrain. Emil's ultimate dream is to represent Denmark at the 2024 Olympics in Paris, a dream that is coming closer and closer to reality after the successes of 2023.

Emil is the elder half of Denmark's standout sibling triathlon duo, with his sister Anne Holm.
