Gwen Jorgensen Olympic Gold Medalist, Professional Triathlete, Runner and New Mom

On August 20, 2016, on the hot sunny beaches of Copacabana, in Rio, Brazil, one woman changed the course of sports history, setting a new record in Triathlon and becoming the first American athlete to win the gold medal for Triathlon at the 2016 Rio Olympics.  Her name, Gwen Jorgensen!

Marni sync’s up with Gwen to talk about her most recent gold medal, Stanley Lemieux, born August 16, 2017 and her next gold medal goal, the Marathon at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.  They discuss getting back to training after having a baby, her foray into triathlon and her athletic roots, Gwen’s training philosophy and winning mindset, the Rio Olympics 2016 and her running goals for Tokyo 2020. Gwen Jorgensen is shifting her focus, running full steam head into Marathon. Marni caught up with her (HA) to get the details. Subscribe, tune in, download and enjoy!
