Gwen Jorgensen

American Professional Triathlete, Olympic Champion

Gwen Jorgensen Biography

Since she won gold at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, Gwen Jorgensen has captivated fans of running—in part because during that golden performance, she pulled away throughout the run segment of the event and had the fastest split of the day for the 10K.

In 2017, Jorgensen announced she was giving up the “comfort” of triathlon dominance to pursue a bold new goal: Win an Olympic gold medal in the marathon. Her announcement came just months after giving birth to her son Stanley.

Jorgensen has husband and chef (and former pro cyclist) Patrick Lemieux by her side and they work seamlessly as a team. One of his top priorities? Helping his wife fuel her training, especially during the nine months she spent breastfeeding and listening to her body, as she worked herself back into shape. She is a relatable and accessible working mom who is continuing to inspire on her new journey with her family’s support every step of the way.

At the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics, Jorgensen made history when she became the first American to win an Olympic Gold Medal in the sport of triathlon. Her dominance of the sport and her inspiring performances have captivated fans around the world. She helped evolve the international presence of Olympic distance triathlon and position the event as one of the most anticipated races of the Rio Olympics. She continues to redefine herself within the endurance sports arena and what it means to be a successful female athlete.

At the 2015 ITU World Triathlon Grand Final Chicago, Jorgensen clinched her 2nd straight world championship title by securing the NO. 1 ranking. She is the only U.S. Woman to win back-to-back world titles in triathlon (2014, 2015) and the first triathlete – male or female to complete an undefeated season (2015). She finished the 2016 ITU season ranked 2nd overall. Jorgensen was undefeated between May 2014 and April 2016, earning 12 consecutive ITU World Triathlon Series wins, and a total of 17 ITU WTS event victories leading up to the Rio Olympics.

In 2014, Jorgensen capped a record-breaking season as the only woman in ITU World Triathlon Series history to win 8 career series events and 5 in one season. She posted the fastest run split of the field in every 2014 WTS event in which she competed – a dramatic statistic that has continued since. She competed at the London 2012 Olympics where she finished a disappointing 38th place due to a bike mechanical.

Jorgensen received the Interbike 2016 Triathlete of the Year award and she was named 2014 & 2015 ITU Athlete of the Year by USA Triathlon.

Jorgensen is backed by a global team of reputable endemic and well-known mainstream sponsors. Brands including ASICS, Oakley, Specialized and ROKA continually promote Gwen’s historic athletic accomplishments through a variety of print and digital campaigns. Red Bull, Sleep Number, Columbia Threadneedle Investments and The Island House supported Gwen’s Rio preparations across four continents this year. Gwen is proud to be aligned with Olympic Sponsors Visa, 24 Hour Fitness and Ernst & Young. Her established partnerships create an environment for some unique cross-promotional opportunities, such as her 2016 custom branded Columbia Threadneedle Amira bike frame, designed by Specialized. She raced on this bike during the 2016 Leeds WTS, a race she won in dominating form. This bike was auctioned for nonprofit Dare2Tri in October 2016.

In 2014, the Gwen Jorgensen Scholarship was launched to fund junior triathletes and paratriathletes. To date, more than $75,000 has been awarded. Gwen is passionate about giving back to her sport and her Scholarship offers a unique way for brands to enhance their presence across the triathlon and Olympic sports arenas while building relationships with the next generation of athletes. Gwen also lends her time to USA Triathlon for their annual junior athlete camp.

Gwen’s unprecedented triathlon career has many wondering how she achieved gold medal success in a relatively short period of time. Gwen is a former tax accountant turned professional triathlete who solidified a place in history by becoming the first American to win an Olympic Gold Medal in triathlon. Training clubs, media outlets, entrepreneurs and executive teams alike want to learn from Gwen’s inspiring journey and draw parallels to their daily execution, innovation and agility. Gwen has spoken to audiences around the world about how to effectively set goals, learn from your competitors, understanding the difference between investment versus sacrifice and the power of having others believe in you.
