Asheville Triathlon a great event to meet local triathletes, says Marin
We are super excited to meet Triathlon Coach Jorge Marin at our Asheville Triathlon this weekend!
Jorge coaches a triathlon team called Tritanium in Colombia, and he organizes a triathlon race every year in his country. He definitely has some experience under his belt: 14 years as a triathlete, several completed triathlons in Colombia and few half Ironmans in the United States. He is preparing to do is first Full Ironman in Florida in November.
Jorge placed 5th overall and 2nd place in his age group in a recent national half Ironman, and he has another one planned in the Outer Banks here in North Carolina in September.
So why is he participating in our Asheville Triathlon?
“Because I will be visiting Asheville for 10 days and saw there is a triathlon here, and I thought it could be a nice opportunity to meet people here,” Jorge said. “Also because Asheville is a beautiful city.”
Jorge said he would love to meet more local triathletes, so please give him a warm welcome when you see him this weekend.
We did ask Jorge if he would like to compete against Professional Triathlete Sarah Alexander, who is also competing Sunday. He replied via email with smiley face icons:
“Hehe, I am not a professional triathlete like Sarah. I bet she will kick my a$$ for sure!”
I guess our money is still on Sarah. 🙂
Good luck Jorge we can’t wait to see you and all of our other participants in action this Sunday, July 21st at Asheville Rec Park!
