Biography

www.helentucker.co.uk/

Jenkins is a two-time World Champion from 2008 and 2011 and finished fifth at London 2012, the highest position ever by a British woman at an Olympic Games. She also holds more ITU World Triathlon Series podium finishes than any other British woman.

She is a double Olympian, having previously competed at the 2008 Games in Beijing where she finished in 21st place. 

Since 2012 she has finished in the top-three of the World Series on three occasions, although her season was cut short in 2014 with a foot problem that would also rule her out of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. 

She will compete for Team GB at the inaugural European Games at Baku 2015.
