Early life[edit]

Erin Densham attended the Ruse Public School and the John Therry Catholic High School.[2] She holds a degree in Fitness (Certificate III) and lives in St Kilda, Victoria, Australia.[3]


In 2008, Densham competed in the 2008 Beijing Olympics and came 22nd.[4] In 2009, Densham was seriously hampered by heart problems and glandular fever. In Des Moines (Hy-Vee) Densham had to be dragged from the water.[5]

In 2010, Densham is also one of the many international elite guest stars representing French clubs at the prestigious French Club Championship Series Lyonnaise des Eaux. At the opening circuit in Dunkirk on 23 May 2010, for instance, Densham placed 2nd and thus was the best triathlete of Poissy Tri, which thanks to her won the Dunkirk club ranking.[citation needed]
