Jenkins’ next appearance on the world stage will be at the ITU World Triathlon Series event in London this weekend.

Jenkins said: “I am so excited to join the Huub family and race in their wetsuits. I tested the Axena and it is without doubt the fastest wetsuit I have swum in. The technology and fit of this wetsuit is second to none. I am looking forward to my first race in the Axena this weekend at the ITU World Triathlon Series event in London’s Hyde Park.”

Dean Jackson, Huub CEO, said: “We are extremely excited to have Helen join the HUUB family of world beating triathletes. I have respected Helen as an athlete for years and jumped at the chance to work with her. I am excited to have her on board as an ambassador for HUUB wetsuits. Supporting athletes of Helen’s calibre is vital to help us to continue developing the fastest wetsuits in the sport of triathlon.”
