Jarrod looks to get on the podium this weekend in his 3rd IRONMAN in 2017
This weekend, US Olympian, Jarrod Shoemaker, will race IRONMAN Wisconsin. This will be Jarrod’s 3rd IRONMAN event in 2017 and his 4th IRONMAN since making the switch in 2016 from the standard Olympic distance to IRONMAN. He is coming off his best IRONMAN finish at IRONMAN Boulder in June where he finished 4th. Jarrod will be looking to get on the podium in Wisconsin on Sunday.
Jarrod raced in the 2008 Olympics on the USA Triathlon Team. He has been a constant fixture on the US National Team and held two major titles – the 2009 Duathlon World Champion and the U-23 World Champion. Until 2016, he raced exclusively on the ITU World Triathlon Series (WTS) circuit racing in events consisting of a 1.5 km swim – 40 km bike – 10 km run. Then, Jarrod began racing IRONMAN 70.3 events posting multiple top ten finishes in races almost double the distance of his previous specialty. In November 2016, he raced his first full IRONMAN (3.8 km swim – 180 km bike – 42 km run) and now his goal is to qualify for the IRONMAN World Championships.
