Gordo Byrn

Gordo Byrn’s athletic accomplishments are listed below but are secondary to what makes he feels makes him an effective coach. He states that the most relevant part of his athletic background is his journey from an obese “finance guy” to an elite athlete, starting from scratch in the mid-90s and turning his life around.

Gordo’s athletic career started when he decided to go for a walk in 1993. That walk led him to his first season of triathlon (1999) and, eventually, to elite athletics (2001). Since turning 40 in 2008, Gordo has shifted athletic focus towards balancing time with his family and agegroup participation. To keep things fun, he has expanded beyond triathlon into ultradistance mountain biking.

Athletic Highlights:

Ultraman Hawaii Champion(2002)

Multiple podium finishes at international races (2003/2004/2005/2006)

Swim, bike, run across America (2004) and New Zealand (2010)

Top finish at Leadville Trail 100 Bike (7:29 in 2012)

Personal best of 8:29 at Ironman Canada (0:51 Swim, 4:48 Bike, 2:46 Run -- 2004)
