Gustav Iden is the 70.3 2019 Triathlon World Champion. Several weeks ago, Gustav Iden took the spoils and victory in what was arguably the most stacked and deep triathlon long course field in the history of the sport by taking out the PTO Championships at Challenge Daytona.
Gustav is from Bergen, Norway, where he trains alongside the Norwegian powerhouse team including prior featured guests from Episode 117 - Kristian Blummenfelt and Triathlon Norway Head Coach and Sports Director of the Norwegian Triathlon Federation, Arild Tveiten, who we featured on episode 224.
In addition to Gustav's success across the 70.3 and long course world of triathlon, Gustav was also part of the historic Norwegian Podium Clean Sweep at the World Triathlon Series leg held in Bermuda in 2019, where he took out third place. In 2019 Gustav was also fourth across the line in the Tokyo Olympic test event.
In this episode, you'll hear Gustav outline his top three tips for each of the disciplines of triathlon swim, bike and run. Gustav shares why winning is truly a choice, along with an incredible story about the Taiwanese hat that he picked up off the side of the road in Thailand that has gone on to create quite a stir in Taiwan and also landing Gustav a great commercial partner in Giant Bicycles. Gustav shares his training philosophy around intensity control and volume, talks about pre race nerves, survives the physical performance round and issues a fantastic physical challenge for the week.
