Fourth Fastest Ironman Champion of All Time1
Sara Svensk has been competing in triathlon for a few years now and with notable results. But it wasn't until 2019, under the direction of coach Frank Jakobsen, that Svensk showed the world of professional triathlon her capabilities. With the fastest run split and a top 10 finish at the Ironman 70,3 World Championships, Svensk set her sites on qualifying for the 2020 Ironman Hawaii by lining up in Barcelona. Then, the magic happened. Sara blazed to a 8:34 finish, becoming the fourth fastest female professional of all time. Only Chrissie Wellington, Daniela Ryf and Anne Haug (all 3 Ironman World Champions) have gone faster.
The upside for Dr. Sara Svensk in 2020....yes that's right, we said Doctor. Sara has been achieving these incredible Ironman results while working part time as a Medical Doctor in a Hospital. In 2020, due to her results, Svensk is looking to put her Medicine career on hold and train full-time, thus leveling the playing field against her competitors.
Look for big things to come in 2020 from Sara Svensk!
