Nick Pilgrim (13-15 Youth Elite) and Lynsey Palmer ( 16-19 Junior Elite) will take on the USA’s best youth and junior triathletes this weekend as they take to the start line for the 2017 USTA National Championships.
Both Lynsey and Nick earned their places on the start line with excellent performances in USTA junior and youth series races in 2017 which gave them solidarity spots for this weekend’s races.
The USA has great depth in junior triathlon so for Lynsey, being one of the youngest in the age group, these championships will be a strong test but also a great learning experience. In the regional race in Ohio she showed that she certainly belongs at this level of competition. A finish anywhere in the top 60% would be a big achievement.
At just 14, Nick Pilgrim still has another year as a youth elite athlete but with two top ten finishes in USTA regional races in 2017 ( he was the 1st 14 year old in both races), he will be hoping to at least crack the top 20 this weekend.
Lynsey starts at 8AM local time ( 9AM Bermuda) with Nick going at 12: 05PM (1PM Bermuda).
