Biography

Henri starting competing in the elite field in 2011, after spending a couple seasons in the junior ranks. He adapted into the sport from a swimming background, so not long after starting to compete it became evident that he excelled in one of the disciplines over the rest of the field. Eventually he carved a special namesake for himself as a huge threat in the swim. Tuning into a race, it became a competition norm to see the Vereeniging, South Africa native be one of the leading men out of the water, a move that started to act as his signature race form.

During the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games, Henri earned the bronze medal in the men’s race in his debut Olympic appearance. His bronze at Rio was the first Olympic medal South Africa has won in the sport. He then followed up that dream-worthy performance by winning his first-ever World Triathlon Series race at the Cozumel Grand Final.

2017 has seen two podiums and a number of impressive races throughout the season.
