YES WE SAID OLYMPIC CHAMPIONSHIPS!
You qualify for the Olympic Championship by placing in the top 15% of your age group, in the Spring Sprint in the SPRINT Distance Race May 5th.
What Category Must I Participate In To Qualify?
To qualify, you must participate in an age group category. Participating in an Elite, Open, Athena, Clydesdale, etc. category will not qualify you. Qualification is based on the finish in the athlete's age group, not where the athlete is extended an award. For example, if an athlete wins an overall award at an event and is removed from their age group, they will be placed back in their respective age group for purposes of qualification and the USAT rankings database. All athletes must be at least 17 years old by Dec. 31, 2019, to qualify for the Olympic-Distance National Championships.
The Olympic-Distance Age Group National Championship will take place on Saturday, Aug. 10 while the Sprint National Championship will occur on Sunday, Aug, 11. Athletes will swim in Lake Erie and bike and run along the lake shore overlooking downtown Cleveland. Participants of both races have the chance to compete for Age Group National Titles as well as spots on Team USA in 2020.
