Lisa Nordén (born 24 November 1984, Kristianstad, Skåne, Sweden) is a professional Swedish triathlete, 2008 Olympian and 2012 Olympic silver medalist. She is also the winner of the 2012 Triathlon World Series.
Nordén's other accomplishments include Swedish Champion of the year 2008, the U23 World Champion of the year 2007, the Sprint World Champion of the year 2010, vice World Champion (World Championship Series) of the year 2009, bronze medalist of the World Championship Series of the years 2008 and 2010, and bronze medalist at the European Championships 2010.
Nordén took the silver medal in triathlon at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. She was credited with the same time (1:59.48) as gold medalist Nicola Spirig, but was edged out in a photo finish. The Swedish Olympic Committee (NOC) appealed the result to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). The appeal was denied the day after it was filed, Norden says she is happy with her silver medal and considers it a gold medal.
Nordén additionally takes part in non ITU events. In 2010, she won three gold medals at Gladbeck, Witten and Schliersee (German open Championships). She has represented Stadtwerke Team Witten.
In Sweden, Nordén lives in Höör, and represents Kristianstads Triathlonklubb, the club of her birthplace where Nordén's father and her half-sister still live. Her training base, however, is in Canberra, Australia. Her coach is Darren Smith.
