Rudy von Berg: Ironman World Champion in the making
Triathlon is in Rudy von Berg's genes. The 26-year-old grew up in a household where swim-bike-run was the norm. His Dad Rudolphe Von Berg first race at the Ironman World Championships in the 1980s. And von Berg Jnr has been dreaming of winning the iconic race since he first stepped on the Big Island as a 5 year old, to watch his Dad compete. In the last couple of years, under coach Luc Van Lierde, Rudy von Berg has shown he means business. In 2019 he finished 3rd at the Ironman 70.3 World Championships. But the wait to do a full Ironman continues...

Growing up surrounded by all things tri
The fear of underperforming in 2019
Why he's never wanted to be coached by his dad
"It's all in the head" - developing confidence and mental strength to finish on the podium
Why he prefers to have his family supporting rather than all competing at the same race!
