Romain Guillaume

With a triathlete/swim coach dad, Romain Guillaume was destined to become a triathlete. He once commented on his love for the sport he started practicing at the age of 8: “It is not only my objectives that guide me throughout my career, it is my passion. I have a true love for the sport of triathlon and I train and race according to my desire. As long as the desire is there, I will continue to practice and reach as high as possible.” Romain turned pro in 2009, focusing on the long distance from the beginning. His breakthrough year was 2012. That year he won both the full and half Ironman races in Mont-Tremblant, as well as the Cannes Tristar. Romain started 2014 on a positive note with a 3rd place finish in Ironman 70.3 South Africa. In May, he won the Ironman Lanzarote. His childhood dream became reality by finishing in the top 10 at the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii that same year. In 2015 Romain secured a podium spot (3rd) in his home race in Ironman Nice, leading the entire race until run kilometer 30 and a strong 2nd place in Ironman 70.3 Lanzarote.
