Interviews with the elite – Javier Gomez Noya: “My motivation and attitude are basically the same now and when I was 18 or 20 years-old”

Javier Gomez Noya, minutes after becoming 2010 World Champion in Budapest.

1. When you started your triathlon career, did you think you could reach as high as you have reached? When did you realise and what made you think you could become the World’s Number One in olympic distance triathlon?

At the beginning I did not set very high goals for myself, I simply wanted to enjoy the sport, learn and improve little by little. What was clear from the very beginning was my passion for triathlon and my eagerness to work hard to improve. I realised that I had potential and slowly but surely, as training sessions and competitions went by I started to see that I could go far. It was a quite natural evolution. I have been progressing all my career, without big leaps but also without stop. Slowly but surely, as it is often said. Maybe my unexpected victory in the Under 23 World Championship in New Zealand in 2003 represented a turnpoint in my career. From then on I saw real possibilities of becoming elite World Champion one day.
