You can't win the race in the swim, but if you aren't in the front pack out of the water in an ITU race, you've already lost. Almost every one of our American Olympians over the past 20 years had an age-group swimming background, and a majority of them competed at the NCAA level. Beyond having a background in swimming, what else is required to consistently make the front pack at a continental cup, a world cup, and a world champ series event? How can you help your athletes in training to set themselves up for success on race day? What can an athlete do during the start, mid-race, and even during the run into T1 to make that front pack? I will give you my answers to these questions and more by drawing from my 10+ years of ITU race experience plus tips and tricks that I have developed from working with USAT development athletes. I also look forward to hearing questions and comments from the webinar participants to discuss issues that your athletes are having or success stories that you have been a part of.
