Passion, motivation and endurance are three things triathlete Camilla Pedersen possesses!
A big part of triathlon is having a strong psyche if you want to get to the top – and Pedersen has exactly that! Within the last few years, she has achieved top rankings in almost every race she has participated in. She also became the first Danish female triathlete to clock in under the magical 9-hour mark in an Ironman event.
The athlete from Esbjerg, Denmark has always taken part in the world of sports; she has a former career on the Danish hockey national team and a great interest in wakeboarding.
After recovering from a serious injury in 2013, Camilla came back in 2014 to prove that she is a fighter in the word’s most pure meaning. As she puts it: “Winners never quit, quitters never win”. Throughout the 2014 season she really put action behind those words, as she won her first 70.3 race in Fuerteventura and in August won the Triathlon World Championship in Weihai, China.
Camilla’s comeback proves that she has an amazing drive and passion, and is a natural triathlon talent.
