Triathlon is one of the sports in which athletes usually only reach their peak performance in their late twenties and thirties. All the more remarkable are the successes that Tim Hellwig has already achieved among the active athletes. The triathlon professional and U23 vice world champion in the short distance was not only the German champion in the sprint distance in 2021. He also won the prestigious World Triathlon Championship Series race in Hamburg that same year. An enormous urge to move and a passion for being outdoors, no matter what the weather, far away from traffic and urban hustle and bustle, have shaped Tim's (athlete's) life since the day his father put him on the starting line for his first triathlon.
