Olympic triathlon gold medal winner Gwen Jorgensen says she is turning to the marathon and aims to make the American Olympic marathon team and go for gold in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

If successful, she would become the first woman to win gold in different summer Olympic competitions.

Jorgensen said running was always her favorite. She ran the 2016 New York City Marathon in 2:41:01 and said she knows she has serious training to accomplish in order to run a faster time.
