Simon is 29 years old and a Bavarian native. In his early age, he started with competition-specific running training and was active on distances between 800m to 5.000m.
A few years later, Simons started with Triathlon, due to his passion for cycling and the more varied training.
In 2016 he was able to achieve his first major wins on middle distance. Since he finished his first long-distance race in Roth, Simon decided to start as a professional Triathlete. His biggest goal is to start at the IRONMAN World Championship on Hawaii.
