Gwen Jorgensen

An American distance runner and gold medal triathlete after winning at Rio in 2016.

Since she won gold at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, American distance runner Gwen Jorgensen has captivated fans by running - in part because during that golden performance, she pulled away throughout the run segment of the event and had the fastest split of the day for the 10K.

Gwen is based in Portland, Oregon with her husband, Patrick, and their son, Stanley.
