An expert over short distance racing, 2019 Swiss elite champion Konig will be hoping
her explosive speed transfers to the city streets of Super League.
With Switzerland having a fine track record in triathlon, the 26-year-old from Dürnten
off the northern shore of Lake Zurich, is hoping to follow in the wake of her celebrated

compatriots – all-time greats such as Olympic gold and silver medal winner Nicola
Spirig and five-time Ironman world champion Daniela Ryf.
Fourth in the Swiss national championship in 2015, Konig clinched top spot on the
podium four years later in Sion. She has progressed through the junior and Under-23
ranks gaining experience on most of the sport’s biggest stages, including finishing 13 th in
the Under-23 World Championship in 2019 in Lausanne. Other individual highlights
include a fourth place at last year’s World Cup event in Karlovy Vary and fifth in Olsztyn,
Poland in May over the super sprint distance.
Many of Konig’s best results have been achieved over short distances including as part
of her country’s mixed relay team. A second place in Nottingham in 2019 and third at
the Olympic qualification event in Lisbon, where she led out the team – with Spirig on
the third leg – and helped clinch Switzerland’s spot in Japan.
Coached by Swiss head triathlon coach Gordon Crawford, Konig had a tough Arena
Games baptism in Munich in April where she finished 12 th and is now looking forward to
stepping up to the full Championship Series this autumn. She will hope the timing is
ideal for her return to racing as she recovers from a stress fracture diagnosed after
competing in the WTCS eliminator race in Montreal in July.
