Gwen Jorgensen's hope to be in Paris 2024

The North American has won the Continental Cup in Havana.

Gwen Jorgensen continues with a clear objective this season, to represent the United States in the next Olympic Games in Paris 2024.

The triathlete, Olympic gold medalist in Rio 2016 and world champion in 2014 and 2015, has once again demonstrated her quality by winning the Continental Cup in Havana with authority.

This victory once again places her among the triathletes who will be able to obtain a place in the Olympic event.

In spite of currently occupy the 42nd position and having up to five compatriots ahead in the fight for an Olympic place, the American does not give up.

Her objective is clear: to make one last effort to earn a place in her country's team, with the additional incentive of competing in the mixed relay event, a modality that motivated her to return to triathlon after her retirement in 2016.

Your options to get the place

Qualification for the Paris Games is open and the qualification period will end on May 27.

The US women's team already has Taylor Knibb, who secured his place after his 6th place in the Olympic Test last summer.

Jorgensen will be able to opt for the other two places that are available. One of which will be for the triathlete who manages to finish on the podium in the Yokohama event of the World Series on May 11, or, failing that, among the top eight if no American wins a medal.

The next big event for Jorgensen will be the Abu Dhabi World Series race, on March 8, over sprint distance.

This competition, in which she will face the best triathletes in the world, including her compatriots, will be the litmus test for her Olympic aspirations.

Hope for this 2024

Despite his poor performance in the 2023 World Triathlon Series, Jorgensen is training very hard, as he says through his YouTube channel and his social media posts.

He has also been working with a sports psychologist for months, preparing to knock on the door of Paris.
