Jan Frodeno is not one to settle for "good enough." Competing in one of the most physically grueling and mentally demanding events in sport, and as the preeminent talent of his generation, he can't afford to be anything but meticulous. Frodeno is the reigning two-time Ironman World Champion and is in pursuit of historic terrirtory: becoming the first racer to break the vaunted 8-hour barrier.
Jan began competing as a swimmer at the age of 15 in Cape Town, South Africa, where he grew up for part of his childhood. After watching the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, Frodeno found his new passion and eventual career in the sport of triathlon. After competing in a few triathlons in his then home of South Africa, Frodeno returned to his birthplace in Europe to compete in the German League as an amateur. After experiencing much success, including a silver medal at the 2004 U-23 World Championships, Frodeno decided to turn professional and race on the ITU World Cup circuit. His successes continued in the ITU Olympic distance events before earning a spot on the German Olympic Team for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. Following his gold medal performance in Beijing, Frodeno decided to retire from the Olympic distance and focus his efforts on long-distance racing.
Frodeno has won numerous events at the Ironman 70.3 level and has twice won in Kona, the truest proving ground for the world's best multisport athletes.
When Frodeno isn't competing, he spends most of his time at his home in Girona, Spain with his wife and son.
