Johanna Gartman was on the podium in her first draft legal event at the recent Youth Elite National Triathlon Championships in Colorado Springs.
She went 33:12 in the 400m/10k/2.5k sprint distance event to place 3rd in a very experienced field.
A day after the start of the Olympics in Beijing, over 350 athletes competed in Colorado Springs. Rock/Creek is proud to have had an athlete compete and win a spot on the podium. Congratulations Johanna!
