Enjoy this interview from our Breakfast with Bob 2023 Edition.
Matthew Marquardt swam at Princeton and when Covid 19 cancelled the 2020 season, he decided to train for the Ironman 70.3 Eagleman Triathlon – where he went 4:05 in his first-ever race. He is now a pro triathlete and is in his second year of medical school at Ohio State. He just raced for the first time as a pro at Ironman Texas and took third overall and was only 8 seconds out of second place and 21 seconds behind the winner, Rudy Von Berg. How about this for a pro debut? He swam 48:59, rode 4:08:12, ran 2:43:08 and finished with an epic time of 7:45:11. This young man is something very special!
