2014 USA Triathlon Youth & Junior National Championships-Recap

 

Congratulations to all of our Florida Region athletes that made the trip to West Chester, Ohio on August 2-3 to compete in the 2014 USA Triathlon Youth & Junior National Championships. Nearly 1,000 athletes, ages 7-19, from all over the United States were welcomed by terrific weather, and superb Midwestern hospitality. Our Florida Region was represented by 15 elite division (ages 13-19) athletes, and 54 age group (ages 7-15) athletes from ten (10) Florida Region Youth/Junior Teams.
