10: Erin Jones, Professional Triathlete
Erin is a 24 year old American triathlete who is one of 4-5 women fighting it out for the last Olympic spot for the 2016 games in Rio. Erin is from Hood River, OR and currently living and training in Colorado Springs as she prepares for the last Olympic qualifier in the spring.
She has won the 2013 Collegiate National Championship, as well as the 2013 and 2014 U23 National Championships. She finished 17th at the Rio “Test Event” in 2015, as the 5th American. Erin is without a doubt one of the rising stars in the stable of female American triathletes competing in draft legal triathlon.
Best Moment as a Professional Triathlete
Most people would think it would be one of the 3 National Championships Erin won…. it's not. The next best guess would be the Bronze medal finish at the U23 World Championships or one of the multiple podium finishes… it’s not. You’ll have to listen to Erin tell the story!
Looking Forward to the Most
Erin definitely has her eyes set on the last Olympic Trials event in Yokohama in the middle of May.
