2014 Athlete of the Year

Although he had been quietly winning Ironmans since his first one in 2010 at Ironman Lake Placid, Ben Hoffman largely went under the world triathlon radar -- until he placed second at the 2014 Ironman World Championship, the first time an American has stood on the Kona podium in five years. This result led to him being named the 2014 USA Triathlon Elite Non-Drafting Athlete of the Year.

Ben had an active childhood growing up in Colorado, playing ball sports, running track, riding his bike to school, and rock climbing. He first took up triathlon in a college club despite having no background in swimming, and he won the National Collegiate Championship in his senior year in the individual and team categories.

After taking a year off to study, Ben came back to do what he really loved and has grown into one of the best Ironman athletes in the world.

Ben Hoffman: The Grind of a Champion

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Ben Hoffman has a very workmanlike approach to triathlon: nothing big or fancy, but the American has shown himself capable of delivering results when they matter. His 2014 runner-up finish in Kona was his breakout performance and he has backed that up since with solid results including the regional championship win at Ironman South Africa last year. Bahrain Endurance 13 caught up with Ben in the lead-up to his title defense to find out what makes a champion tick.
