“It was tough at the time but it made me stronger – when I went to the start line again, just the fact of being there again made me really happy. I think I appreciate the fact of being able to race, to do what I want to do. Yeah, still nowadays I think it was actually something good that happened to me because without that I probably wouldn’t be that strong mentally and my career would have been totally different”
– Javier about overcoming the cardial anomaly that threatend to stop his career
I am very proud to present a interview with the exceptional Javier Gomez Noya – four times ITU world champion, 2014 Ironman 70.3 World Champion, Olympic silver medalist and 2012 Xterra world champion plus much, much more! This interview is a very fine addition to the Husky International Series.
During a hectic training period at Playitas Resort Javier took time for a shorter sitdown and interview. Hear about his way into triathlon, about the competition, about the changing racing scene with actors such as the Challenge series flexing their muscles. About being famous and about the cardial anamoly that once threatened his career but ended up helping him to appreciate his way of living.
This interview was recorded at Playitas Resort in cooperation with Apollo.
