Athletes Men › Max Studer
Max Studer has been nicknamed Clark Kent by his coach because he changes his personality and becomes a Superman when he competes. That coach in question is Brett Sutton, who has led multiple athletes to triathlon domination down the years and is now guiding Max to some rapidly improving results. Max grew up in the small village of Kestenholz in Switzerland and enjoyed an active and outdoors lifestyle playing football, swimming and training in gymnastics.
He raced his first event at the age of 10, the PowerKids section of the legendary Powerman event in Zofingen thanks to the inspiration from his triathlon mad family, which includes brother Felix who has also represented Switzerland in the sport.
Driven in part by his love of running – which he has never lost as evidenced by winning the 10,000m national title in Switzerland in 2021 – and of competing, Max continued to thrive, despite being physically smaller than many of his adversaries at the time, and proved his determination by clocking up numerous successes.
In 2017 he made the move to link up with Brett Sutton and to focus fully on training and racing at the very top end of the sport. It paid off as Max really marked himself out as one for the future in 2018 when he became Under-23 European Champion in both the individual and Mixed Relay events and secured a first victory at elite level in the World Cup race in Tongyeong, South Korea.
Further impressive results have followed, including taking the European Championship title in the elite Super Sprint race in Kitzbuhel in 2021 and a tenth place at WTS Hamburg. However, Max really established himself on the global scene at the Tokyo Olympics when he produced a stirring display to finish 9th and set himself up for a big few years ahead.
Max currently lives and trains in St. Moritz-Bad, Switzerland.
