Nilsson won Ironman Copenhagen in the 8th fastest time ever recorded in an Ironman event and followed that with another record breaking, sub 8 hour performance, taking the win in Ironman Barcelona only 6 weeks later. Patrik made his debut at the Ironman World Championship in 2017 with a fantastic 8th place finish. In 2018 Nilsson went on to claim the Vice-European Ironman title in Frankfurt.
