My name is Bob Haller and I'm a professional Triathlete from Luxemburg, born 19th of May 1993.
With my new homepage I want to share with you my passion for Triathlon and show you my goals, results and development, presenting it by news articles written by my own, press articles from luxemburgish journals and foreign journals if possible, and by pictures.
My history began in 2004, where I have been discovered by the sports journalist Romain Schlechter in a running race at my old school.
In 2005 I tried my first Duathlon in Luxemburg where I finished last, but Romain pushed my talent and so he has been my coach for many years and is still supporting my career and my development throughout the years. Due to him I discovered my passion for Triathlon in 2006.
One year later I became National Champion and have been undefeated for 7 years. He has got most influence on my career so far, as well as my Mum. In the last decade, i have been National Champion in Duathlon and Triathlon for seven years in a row, often competed in Belgium and Netherlands and have won several races abroad.
In 2009, my International spirit began to grow as I participated at my first European Championchips in Holten (NED). Since 2009 I have never skipped any European Championchip. In 2013, I started the first time at a U23 European Championchip and it was again in Holten, where I finished 31st. In 2014 then, I started for the first time at the Elite European Championchips in Kitzbühel (AUT).
In 2010, I was really proud to qualify myself for my very first World Championchips in Budapest (HUN) as a Junior. In the following years I just had to skip one World Championchip in London 2013, due to my entrance in the Army to become a professional Traithlete.
My best years so far have been 2012 and 2014.
In 2012, as a Junior I counted as one of the best in Europe and the World, in every European Cup I finished in a Top 7 and three times 4th place. As my European Championchips didn't go as I wished it, finishing 9th, I trained hard over the hole summer to finally get my first World Championchip Medal at the Duathlon World Championchips in Nancy (FRA), where I finished 3rd. One month later I won the Aquathlon World Championchips and three days later I found myself in on the bike in the front pack of eight people fighting for Gold, before I unfortunately crashed and broke my Bike.
In 2014, my season started bad, due to less training over 4 month during Army time. But with every race to come, I became stronger again and felt more and more comfortable. So i could also get on start at my first World Cup in Tiszjauvaros (HUN) and qualified for the finals. Only one week later I finished my first Top 10 in a Elite European Cup. And to finish my year I had for myself a almost perfect race in Edmonton (CAN), where I finished 17th.
Over the years, I have met a lot of people and got a lot of friends all over the world which I am happy about. Currently I train in Luxemburg with the National Coach Thomas Andreos and Yves Goeldi, my running Coach and confidant person Yves Goeldi and my stability and motoric coach Frank Eicher. But, I love to do some of my Training camps abroad with friends as Dorian Coninx from France and the National Team of Norway.
I hope you will enjoy my new homepage!
