Jan Frodeno is one of the most successful German triathletes. Born in cologne he celebrated his biggest success with a gold medal at the Olympic Games in Peking 2008.
Frodeno grew up in South Africa and worked there as a lifeguard beside a school. Driven by his sporting ambition Frodeno sold his racing bike for a ticket to Germany to become a profesional triathlete.
The plan worked. In 2003 Frodeno came 2nd at the German U23 triathlon championship. From that point his carrer began to take off. The following years he came 2nd at the U23 World Championship, became German Champion and came 2nd at the European Championship. In 2008 he marked his biggest success by winning the gold medal in Peking.
In the first year after this glorious victory he achieved 10th place in the World Champion overall standings. In 2010 he failed to capture the World Championship and therefore the historical double. After this his focus was completely on the Olympic Games in London 2012 where he achieved an excellent 6th place.
In 2015 Frodeno made another big step in his career. First he gained in Frankfurt the title of the European Champion, followed by his triumph at the world championchips on Hawaii. His most successful year so far!
