Wow – Big congratulations to these GRC athletes!
Ali Schwein- After having left for college at Colorado-Boulder (how cool is that?), came back to Chicago and did the ITU World Championships and took 3rd in her Age Group and was first American at the Olympic distance for 18-19 year olds. We are sad to have her move on; but excited for her as she starts her life as a full time college student. She was a joy to work with for the past 2 years.
Duane Amato- Our Masters “stud”. He did the ITU Worlds in Chicago also and finished 15th in his AG for the Worlds race and backed it up with a 2nd place AG finish on Saturday for the open sprint race. He’s had a great season and continues to get better with age!
