Throughout the month of November, athletes are continuing to participate in USA Triathlon’s Virtual Combine on GMTM. Participating athletes have the opportunity to be highlighted and have the chance to win fun prizes throughout the month.
USA Triathlon has seen great submissions and participation this month. Keep reading to check out a few of the athletes who have been making a splash so far.
Elizabeth Rose, Armorel, Arkansas, is currently a senior at Armorel High School. She has competed in swimming for over 10 years and has experience running track and cross-country. She is interested in pursuing the sport of triathlon at the collegiate level, because she enjoys the multi-sport aspect and competitive environment.
Elizabeth is a great example of an athlete who is looking to make a splash in the world of triathlon at the collegiate level, while using her prior experience from other sports to try out for a new sport. Elizabeth would be a great addition to the triathlon community.
Molly Wert, Scottsdale, Arizona, has been competing in triathlons for about 3 and a half years. She started off as a swimmer, competing since the age of 8. Molly has loved transitioning from swimming into the sport of triathlon, because she has been pushing herself beyond her comfort zone and reaching new heights that she hadn’t dreamed possible. Swimming gave her a great background and foundation to find her stride in the sport of triathlon.
A current student at the University of Arizona, and the president of the Tricats triathlon club team this season. Her dedication and commitment shines through and is proof with her winning the “Grit Award” presented by Lifetime Arizona Swim Team. Molly is an active member of the triathlon community and looks forward to each new season to see what new heights she can reach.
Keira Wilkinson, Westminster, Colorado, has been swimming since she was 4 years old and running cross country since she was in kindergarten. She has been participating in triathlons, and attending triathlon camps to improve her skills in the sport and learn how to excel in the draft legal discipline. She’s already making a splash in the sport by landing on the podium at events this past summer.
Keira is now a senior in high school and is looking to explore competing in the sport of triathlon at the collegiate level, while also continuing to excel in her academics.
The USA Triathlon Virtual Combine is still looking forward to more submissions like these. Be sure to submit your information and share this opportunity with members of your community.
