Olympic triathlon champion Gwen Jorgensen has decided to shift her focus to the marathon running for the Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020, she announced on official Twitter page. At the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro 2016, Jorgensen became the United States first Olympic gold medalist in the triathlon.


She started in the New York City Marathon 2016 and ran 2:41:01 for her debut in 42,2 km. Gwen Jorgensen finished 14th overall among the women’s elite and was the 6th American across the finish line. She did not compete in the triathlon or run any marathon in 2017 to give birth to her first child. In spring, Jorgensen, 31, told «The People» magazine that she ran about 100 kilometers in a week when she was pregnant and has a regular swimming training.

«USA Triathlon brought me into this sport, and now I’m incredibly privileged to step away at the top, with an Olympic gold medal», she said in a statement from USA Triathlon. «Though my near-future training will be focused on winning gold in the marathon in Tokyo, I will always be a part of the United States Triathlon family and look forward to embracing every opportunity to help grow the sport of triathlon. In fact, I hope this new adventure in running will play a big part in doing exactly that».
