Bio

Jacob Birtwhistle currently splits his time between home in Australia, training camps in Europe and competing on the WTS world triathlon stage. Originally from a running background, Jacob was crowned Australian Junior Champion 11 times over middle-long distance events before making the transition to triathlon at the age of 17. Since then, Jacob has topped the podium at several ITU races and, despite not yet hitting WTS gold heading into 2019, a brilliant 2018 season saw him grab no fewer than five top-five finishes at the top level, including silver in Yokohama, and a memorable second place in the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast. Jacob has two goals in his sights: to become the World and 2020 Olympic Champion.
