OLYMPIC BRONZE MEDALIST, COMMONWEALTH GAMES GOLD MEDALIST

Henri Schoeman is a Commonwealth Games gold medalist, Olympic bronze medalist, esports world champion, and four-time African champion. While he has received recognition for consistently logging some of the fastest triathlon swims on the circuit, the South African is similarly well-rounded on the bike and run.

In his return from an injury that ended his hunt for Tokyo Olympic glory and kept him out of racing for two years, Henri capitalised on the opportunity to claim the title of World Triathlon Esports Champion racing the Super League Triathlon Arena Games series with a second place at the kickoff in Montreal, winning the Sursee event the week after, and finishing off in second at the Grand Final in London.

He then went on to continue his comeback from injury racing both Championship Series for World Triathlon and Super League Triathlon, and ended his year with a silver at the Ironman 70.3 Middle East Championship Bahrain.
