US Olympics Triathlon Gold Metal Winner Gwen Jorgensen

Gwen Jorgensen, Triathlon Gold Metal Winner

Here is a blog from almost two years ago.  Congratulations are in order! Gwen won the GOLD! – First US triathlon gold metal! This could not have happened to a nicer athlete. Go Gwen Gold!

When I was lucky enough to chat with 2012 Olympic Triathlete and 2014 World Triathlon Series World Champion, Gwen Jorgensen, I was surprised to discover that we have something in common. We both like oatmeal and were born in Wisconsin!

It was truly inspiring to talk about food and nutrition with such an accomplished athlete. Gwen’s favorite food is oatmeal with dried fruit, bananas, coconut oil and topped with poached eggs. Her favorite physical activity is an easy 6K run.

If you like to eat lots of calories, then swim, ride and run in a Triathlon! Gwen needs to consume three filling meals a day plus snacks to have enough energy for her rigorous workout schedule. She likes trying new foods and enjoys fueling her body with healthy foods. I was very fortunate to meet Gwen and am very proud and happy for her many accomplishments. She just won her 10thstraight World Triathlon Series race.

Look out Rio 2016 Olympics. Go Gwen!
