ATHLETES' BIOS - WOMEN JPN YUKO TAKAHASHI Japan's Yuko Takahashi is a hugely experienced triathlete with numerous Asian Cup and Asia Championship titles to her name. The 29-year-old finally hit the World Triathlon Cup podium in 2015 in Tongyeong and the 2018 Asian Games champion only narrowly missed out on a famous Series podium in 2019, finishing fourth at WTCS Yokohama. Consistently delivering solid results ever since, the lack of racing in 2020 appears to have had little impact as she heads to these once-in-a-lifetime home Olympic Games looking to make an impact in both the individual and mixed relay events.
