Jess’s extraordinary rise to the highest level didn’t follow the usual pathway. Unlike most of her rivals that have been competing in swim, bike and run from a young age, Jess only started her first triathlon at the relatively late age of 23. She burst onto the scene at a world level in 2016, and was crowned European Champion the following season as well as finishing on the podium at the World Series Grand Final in Rotterdam.
About Jess Learmonth
During her youth, Jess had a varied sporting background, but it was her experience of swimming for the City of Leeds Swim Club to National Championship level which set her up for a later career in triathlon.
In 2018, Jess secured double silver at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in the individual and mixed team relay. Her resume also includes nine World Triathlon Series podium finishes.
Being dyslexic, sport was her outlet through school and a way of gaining confidence. Seeing many other girls in a similar position, Jess is passionate about helping them recognise their full potential – whether they become Olympians, or just healthy, happy humans. Rather than being in an elite set-up from an early age, Jess’s story is relatable to the thousands of youngsters who are questioning the worth of continuing with sport and exercise in their early teenage years. Already qualified as a triathlon coach, she’d like to invest more of her time in helping those who have all the spirit in the world but have not yet found their direction.
