Meet triathlon’s richest (former) pro

September 29, 2023

For those of us who have been in the sport for a while, we’ll always remember him as the quiet-spoken champion. He won Ironman Switzerland five times. The famed Zofingen Powerman duathlon eight times. He was the world duathlon champion three times. He was professional in every respect of the word. Always taking time to do an interview, it was hard not to come away from any interaction thinking that Switzerland’s Olivier Bernhard was a really nice guy.

Now, thanks to some hard work, he’s also a really rich guy. Bernhard is one of the three founding partners of On Running, a company that has become a powerhouse in the the sports world since it was started in 2010. Bernhard started the company with Caspar Coppetti and David Allemann and, in 2019, tennis great Roger Federer came on board as an investor, too. Triathlon Magazine
