Today we welcome Coach Joel Filliol on the podcast, who most of you may already know – but if you don’t, he’s well recognized as one of the most successful triathlon coaches in the world.
His umbrella of coaching stems across so many levels – from Olympics to IRONMAN, to Junior Development all the way up to the Senior World Championships; Joel has guided athletes to world class success at so many levels.
Joel has worked with IRONMAN athletes like Helle Frederikson, Olympic athletes like Mario Mola, Simon Whitfield, and Alistair Brownlee.
He’s currently working as the Olympic Performance Director for the Triathlon Federation of Italy to help athletes prepare for Tokyo 2020. He also has what he calls his JFT Crew consisting of world class triathletes focusing on the ITU series including some recent podcast guests and 2019 World Champions Katie Zaferes and Vincent Luis.
His training and knowledge extends far into the roots of triathlon, so I am excited and honoured to have him on the podcast as we talk about topics like Tokyo 2020, his outlook on KONA, the JFT Crew, and key takeaways for age group triathletes.
This is a podcast jam-packed with invaluable knowledge and wisdom around endurance training specific to age groupers so relax, take notes and enjoy the episode!
