Born in Camden, NSW, Erin Densham competed in state level swimming and cross-country before combining her skills in triathlons at the age of 16. Densham won the U23 World Championships in Lausanne, Switzerland in 2006. Competing at her first Olympic Games, Densham placed 22nd in Beijing in 2008.
Making a remarkable recovery from a major heart scare and surgery in 2009, Densham returned to competition in 2010. In 2011 and 2012 Densham's extraordinary results put her on a path to the unthinkable - a London Olympic berth. Densham sealed her selection when she won the 2012 Sydney World Championship race in emphatic fashion and finished second at the next World Championship race in San Diego.
Erin is widely respected in the triathlon and sporting arenas. She is extremely well presented, articulate and would be well suited as a brand ambassador/representative.

Erin Densham is a triathlete with an amazing journey so far. She aims to better her Olympic Bronze from London 2012, in Rio 2016.
