We have three races to report on this week: the Youth Olympic Games qualifier in Ecuador, the Connecticut Open Water State Championship, and the Avalon Splash and Dash race! Let’s get started.
Parker Albright and Abby Church traveled with Team USA to Salinas, Ecuador for the Youth Olympic Games Qualifier – both had to qualify for this event and it included athletes from North America, South America, and Canada. Coach Michael was one of the team coaches selected to guide Team USA. Parker executed the perfect race winning overall and earning the only US spot to the Youth Olympic Games. Abby ran a strong race to finish 15th overall. To learn more about the Youth Olympic Games (which is a huge deal), visit https://www.olympic.org/
