Sofie Goos

Sofie Goos has been a professional triathlete since she joined the Uplace Pro Triathlon Team in 2010. At that point, the fun-loving athlete from Antwerp had already established herself among her country's best, winning more than 10 short distance races in Belgium. Sofie's international breakthrough came in 2009, just two years after entering her first Ironman race, taking the Ironman Florida and Challenge Barcelona titles. Sofie subsequently proved her love for her hometown by winning the Ironman 70.3 Antwerp 3 year in a row between 2009 and 2011. In 2012 she added Ironman Brazil to her list of victories and in 2013, she won the Ironman 70.3 in Luxembourg. Sofie kicked off 2014 with a win in the Ironman 70.3 Texas. She then went on to take 4 second places: in Ironman 70.3 San Juan, Ironman 70.3 Mallorca, and on the full distance in Ironman Brazil and Ironman Copenhagen. In 2015 Sofie managed to add again 3 more Ironman and Ironman 70.3 podium spots to her resume by finishing 2nd in Ironman Copenhagen, 2nd in the Latin American Championships Ironman 70.3 and 3rd in Ironman 70.3 Luxembourg.
