Biography

www.helentucker.co.uk/

Helen Jenkins, née Tucker, won her first world title in 2008 before going on to make her Olympic debut in Beijing. Aside from Alistair Brownlee, Jenkins is the only other member of the British team for London to have Olympic experience.

Last year she became the first British woman to win the ITU World Championship Series title since its inception in 2009, with a race win in London and second-place finishes in Kitzbühel and Madrid and the Grand Final in Beijing.

She married Marc Jenkins, who represented Britain on the ITU World Cup circuit and at Athens 2004, in October 2008 at Walt Disney World in Florida and they now live in south Wales with their Labrador Barney.

Jenkins was named Female Triathlete of the Year by British Triathlon in 2011 and shared the BOA’s Olympic Athlete of the Year with Brownlee in the same year.
