Regions MID-ATLANTIC


The Maryland Youth Triathlon Series wrapped up its inaugural year Aug. 27 at the Nottingham Kids Triathlon, which also served as the USA Triathlon Mid-Atlantic Youth Regional Championship. The Maryland Youth Triathlon Series — a partnership among the TRI-TO “WIN-THE-FIGHT” Frederick Kids Triathlon, Truxtun Youth Triathlon, TriColumbia Kidz Triathlon and Nottingham Kids Triathlon — was formed to promote sun-safe practices, encourage healthy lifestyle choices through multisport and show kids that winning is finishing what you start.


Junior triathlete Hunter Lussi, a Maryland native and youth fitness advocate, made an appearance and presented each participant with a signed copy of his book, “America, Get Off the Couch!” For more information about the Maryland Youth Triathlon Series, visit http://MiniCowTriClub.com/MYTS.

ROCKY


MOUNTAIN


As the 2011 season comes to a close, we’d like to highlight a couple of the Rocky Mountain Region’s more successful events. The 2011 USA Triathlon Rocky Mountain Regional Championship was held in July at Echo Reservoir near Park City, Utah. Hosted by TriUtah, the Echo Triathlon featured athletes from 15 states and was one of the largest open-water triathlons in Utah. USA Triathlon officials noted that this was one of the most competitive events they have officiated in recent history.


With one of the most competitive groups of young athletes in the country, the Rocky Mountain Region decided it was time to create a Regional Junior Championship event. The Greeley Triathlon was proud to host the 2011 USA Triathlon Rocky Mountain Region Junior Championship. In addition to the juniors (ages 16-19), there were age group events as well as races for 13-to- 15-year-olds. Greeley did a phenomenal job in not only hosting these great events but involving the whole community. The race was organized by members of the Greeley Triathlon Club with help from the Greeley Police Officer’s Association, Greeley Central High School athletes and coaches and numerous other volunteers. It was 100 percent volunteer driven with all race proceeds donated to local youth groups and agencies.


With the upcoming 2012 Olympics just around the corner, there’s no better time to focus on seeking out our future Olympians. The USA Triathlon Talent ID Series is designed to do just that. It provides a gateway to the athlete development pipeline for novice teenage athletes. The series also encourages more head-to-head racing opportunities for these athletes. The ultimate objective is to
