Triathlete Camilla Pedersen's Long Road Back From Injury To Glory

Triathlete Camilla Pedersen's Long Road Back From Injury To Glory

Almost five years to the day after a traumatic accident that left her in a coma for nearly three weeks, Camilla Pedersen took the win at the Gerardmer Triathlon in France, one of the toughest courses in Europe. Following the Danish triathlete’s traumatic brain injury in 2013, her doctors warned her that she might never ride a bike again, let alone compete at the highest level of the sport. Camilla defied the odds, and has been steadily getting back to full fitness, with her win earlier this month shining as a true testament to her determination and love of racing.

"I was really happy with the win," said Pedersen. "And it's even more fun because it's a big event. I felt really good and comfortable from the start to the finish. It was especially great to see that all of the hard work has paid off after dealing with some residual health problems that recently sent me in and out of the hospital. But now I'm back in business, back on track, and back on top."
