Top Junior Awarded in Region Series

The USA Triathlon Mid-Atlantic Region is proud to announce the Champion of the 2015 USA Triathlon Mid-Atlantic Region Junior Talent ID Series.

Congratulations to Matthew Deaton, Ruckersville, VA on being the 2015 Junior Talent ID Champion for the Mid-Atlantic Region. Matthew finished 6th at the East Coast Triathlon Festival and 1st at the Druid Hill Triathlon.

In addition to a series medal, Matthew will be receiving a custom made Talent ID Series pull-over.

The series is designed for junior triathletes age 15-19 to race in non-drafting, sprint distance, junior-friendly events which are scheduled during the summer months to avoid school conflicts. Series races serve as an entry point for many young athletes into USAT’s talent identification pipeline.

Athletes earn points based on their top two performances at the six races in the series, with top three female and male overall winners awarded. While many junior triathletes participated in the series events, in order to be eligible for overall awards, athletes must complete at least two events for overall series awards.
