Elite triathlete Gwen Jorgensen realized her Olympic dream in 2011 when she crossed the finish line at the ITU World Triathlon London to lock up a spot on the U.S. Olympic Triathlon Team. Gwen started competing in triathlon in 2010 after being recruited by Olympian Barb Lindquist for USA Triathlon's Collegiate Recruitment Program, part of the elite development pipeline within the organization. With USA Triathlon’s support, Gwen put her career as a CPA at Ernst & Young on hold and was able to focus on training and racing as she developed into one of the world’s best. Alongside the USA Triathlon Foundation, you can support the dream of the next wave of Olympic hopefuls by providing funding for equipment, training camps, international travel and more.
