Z3 athlete, Tanelle Berard, will be starting her season early on the international level. She will first race the Youth Olympic Games qualifying race in Monterrey, Mexico on April 15th. Just like the Olympics, this event will be held every four years and accept one female and male slot for the Youth Olympic Games in Singapore, August 2010.
Berard will also race in the PATCO Junior Worlds Qualifying event in Ixtapa, Mexico. The top US finisher will earn a spot at the ITU Junior Triathlon Worlds that will be held in Budapest, Hungary in September of 2010 as long as they place in the top 8 finishers. If 2 US athletes finish in the top 3 at this event, then both of these individuals will earn a spot at worlds. Tanelle’s goal is to earn one of the worlds spots and to help the US team earn 3 starting positions for worlds.
Wish her good luck as she represents Z3 and the United States!!!
