Frederik Van Lierde is a Belgian triathlete who has amassed quite the resume over his racing career. Coached by another Van Lierde, Luc, Freddie has been able to tap into the expert knowledge of his mentor. Although they are not related, the Van Lierde boys have created quite the duo. Luc, a two-time Ironman World Champion and former world record holder himself has helped Freddie hone his skills and bring him to the top level of the sport.
Frederik got a taste of the Ironman World Championship podium when he placed third in the 2012 race in Kailua-Kona. Determined to better his already impressive finish, he went to work, training hard for that top spot. In 2013, he got his prized possession, blowing away the competition for his first Ironman World Championship crown.
Freddie is married to wife Sofie, with whom he has two children. Van Lierde enjoys watching his two kids play sports when he is not training hard or racing.
