Javier Gomez Noya discovered triathlon in 1998 and quickly rose up the junior ranks with his natural talent, but his determination is what kept him competing at the highest levels to become the most accomplished athlete in ITU history. Diagnosed with a cardiac anomaly only a year into his triathlon career, Javier fought a long battle for the right to compete internationally. With the support of world-ranked cardiologists he recovered his license and has since then gone on to win an Olympic silver medal, 14 ITU World Cups, 4 ETU Championships, 10 World Series, Ironman 70.3 and Xterra world championships, and an unprecedented 5 ITU World Championships. This is one athlete you don't want to be in a sprint finish with, as Jonathan Brownlee discovered in Yokohama. But even with these glistening accolades, Javier won't be resting on his laurels. Super League Triathlon is next in his sights. And what the World Champion wants, he gets.
