From Tax Geek To World's Fastest Triathlete: A Q&A With Olympic Gold Medal Favorite Gwen Jorgensen
If you're not familiar with Gwen Jorgensen, you will be soon. The two-time reigning ITU World Triathlon Champion, Jorgensen promises to become a household name during this summer's Olympics, where she will be the heavy favorite to bring home the gold in Rio. Over the past two years, Jorgensen has arguably been the most dominant athlete in the world; at one point, she won a record 13 consecutive World Cup races, a feat made all the more remarkable by the fact that ITU races -- which are comprised of a 1.5 kilometer swim, 40 kilometer draft-legal bike, and 10 kilometer run -- are often decided by a sprint finish.
