In this episode of The Greg Bennett Show, Greg has a delightful conversation with Javier Gómez-Noya.
These last ten months have been a little rocky but overcoming adversity is what makes this man such a legend. He was fortunate to even have a career, to begin with. Just after he started the sport of Triathlon the High Council for Sports in Spain revealed a cardiac anomaly. That finding led to a six-year battle between him and the sporting administrators in Spain to allow him to race internationally.
Since winning that battle, he has raised the standards of the sport for his entire career. Just as impressively, he’s also been able to reinvent himself whenever new pretenders have looked set to take his mantle.
He’s a man who has won more Triathlons than anyone else in the history of the sport. A career that has spanned almost two decades with 10 world titles over various distances and formats, including 5 ITU World Championships titles, 2 Ironman 70.3 World Titles, an ITU Long course world title, and an Xterra Off-road world title. Add to that a silver medal at the Olympics.
But he’s far more than a champion athlete, he’s one of the best men I know. We’ve lived and shared some epic training sessions together, and battled on the racecourse numerous times. And I’m honored to call him a friend.
