Information about Javier Gómez Noya
Triathlon legend Javi Gómez Noya has credentials that speak for themselves.
Five-time ITU world champion, two-time Ironman 70.3 world champion, Xterra world champion, five-time ITU European champion, Olympic medalist.
Always looking for the next challenge, Javi now enters the unknown in the Ironman distance.
An all terrain
With an outstanding track record in Olympic distance triathlon (1,5km of swimming, 40km of cycling and 10km of running), he could have continued to dominate the terrain.
But that's not Javi's way. First, he headed to the Xterra triathlon and became the best in the world.
He then made the move to the distance Ironman 70.3. It involves 1,9 km of swimming, 90 km of cycling and 21,1 km of running.
The same result: world champion. Twice. He plunged back into uncharted territory to face the full iron distance: 3,8 km of swimming, 180 km of cycling and 42,2 km of marathon.
A story of overcoming
From overcoming the restrictions of heart disease when she was just starting out to staying on top later in her career, she takes it all in stride.
Not only is he a world-class athlete, be it running, cycling or swimming, but distance doesn't matter either.
From sprinting to iron distance events, Javi knows how to win titles.
Javier Gómez was born in Basel (Switzerland) in 1983, but moved to Spain when he was only three months old, moving to Pontevedra to continue his sports career after starting in triathlon at the age of 15.
His first few races showed remarkable skill in all three disciplines, and underscored his reputation as a name to be reckoned with when claiming the U23 world title.
In 2008, Gomez claimed his first elite world title in Vancouver, followed two years later by an overall victory in the new world championship series.
At the 2012 London Olympics, Gomez claimed the silver medal after finishing 11 seconds behind Britain's Alistair Brownlee.
After the Olympics, Gomez won the Hy-Vee Triathlon and a month later, in his first cross triathlon race, he won the 2012 XTERRA World Championship.
In 2013, Gomez began a remarkable string of successes that led to him becoming the first athlete in history to win a treble of consecutive world titles.
In 2019, the Spanish superstar returned to ITU races and the World Triathlon Series, with his sights set on a square for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
This season he finished second in his first WTS race in Bermuda, and collected five top-10s to close the season third in the world rankings.
