Nils Frommhold

Nils Frommhold wasn’t initially expecting to become a professional triathlete when he retired from swimming. But some of the best things in life are surprises.

Nils had a swimming background and his team would always take part in triathlons after their summer break. The day after he retired from swimming, he decided to extend his triathlon efforts for the entire year in an attempt to stay healthy and be as active as possible.

Fortunately for Frommhold, he found a new passion and has since become one of the top triathletes on the circuit.

The German made a splash on the international scene in 2012 when winning IRONMAN Arizona and backed that up two years later with a first place in South Africa as well as a highly creditable sixth at the World Championship in Hawaii.

As well as claiming the great honour of becoming CHALLENGE Roth champion in 2015 (in a time well under eight hours), he added IRONMAN 70.3 Poland to his growing list of titles and has since added further victories at 70.3 in Austria, Astana and Switzerland.

He says the bike is his favourite part of training because it provides the best opportunity to discover new places, but adds that swimming would be his least favourite, saying: “I have swum enough laps for two lives by now!”

Nils’ favourite training location is Mallorca and he is usually seen alongside the likes of Maurice Clavel, Marc Dülsen and Andy Raelert (the last of whom just happens to be his hero). Nils says he is driven by the chance to compete against some of the best triathletes in the world.

If Frommhold had to give out one piece of advice, it would be to be prepared to deal with anything. On the one hand you need a Plan A and B for being in front and on the other hand you need a Plan B if something doesn´t go quite as planned.
