Congrats to Clas Bjorling who was selected by the Swedish Triathlon Federation as Swedish Male Triathlete of 2009. Bjorling set the course record at the Swedish Ironman distance Championship last year ,taking home the gold and earning some serious credit.
“The first time I was honored with this award was after the 2006 season when I set the Swedish Ironman distance record, and this was just before I fell over the edge. Winning this award again in 2009 means even more to me now, after working so hard to recover and come back from those several years of adrenal burnout.”- Clas Bjorling
After a long and hard recovery, Clas has earned his place back in the sport and is now gearing up for an international comeback at the Challenge Copenhagen race on Aug. 15th, 2010.
