On 28 April 2018 Norway became the first nation ever to sweep a podium in a World Triathlon Series event when Casper Stornes, Kristian Blummenfelt and Gustav Iden showed the world what the "Norwegian train" is capable of. Arild Tveiten is the head coach of these athletes, and the man behind the transformation that is making Norway a true triathlon powerhouse.

-The training philosophy of the Norwegian triathletes
-Intensity control in both easy and hard workouts
-The use of extensive lab testing and an incredible amount of lactate testing in the field to ensure intensity control
-Building the engine and physiology of an athlete versus race specific training
-Triathlon being a highly aerobic sport and what that means for training
-Managing training load to prevent illness and injuries
