OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST, WORLD TRIATHLON CHAMPION, IRONMAN WORLD CHAMPION

Kristian Blummenfelt is the first man in triathlon to win an Olympic gold medal, the World Triathlon world championship, and the Ironman world championship in the span of 12 months.

His defining characteristic is his desire to win. It shows in how he trains (up to eight hours daily) and how he races: no holds barred, pedal to the metal. That’s why he broke the Ironman world record, the Ironman 70.3 world record twice, and was the fastest to go under the 7-hour mark over the full distance. He continues to challenge what is thought humanly possible.

Kristian started swimming from the age of eight, while also playing football. But a plateau in his development from the age of 11 to 13 coincided with improved running, spurring his swim coach to encourage him to use his engine elsewhere. He was selected for development as part of Norway’s first youth national squad targeting the nation’s first-ever Olympic triathlon qualification in Tokyo. But he outpaced the planned pathway and qualified a cycle earlier for Rio. But the best was, and is yet to come.
