Check out for post-race interviews from Potts and Jackson from competitor.com.
Lauren Goss (Mount Pleasant, S.C.) earned her first career ITU Pan American Cup victory and podium finish Sunday at the Lima ITU Pan American Cup in Peru. She was nearly a minute clear of the field and finished the Olympic-distance event in 2:11:19. Amanda Felder (Cupertino, Calif.) finished sixth in 2:14:34.
On the men’s side, the American contingent was led by Joe Maloy (Wildwood Crest, N.J.) and Mark Fretta (Portland, Ore.), who placed third and fourth, respectively. Maloy’s showing was good for his first career ITU Pan American Cup podium finish.
As a tune up for next weekend’s ITU World Championship Series opener in Sydney, Jarrod Shoemaker (Maynard, Mass.) ran the always-fast Carlsbad 5000 on Sunday and placed ninth in 14:12. His showing was good for a 5k road PR, according to Shoemaker’s Twitter page. Click here to check out Shoemaker in action.
Up next for many top elites like Shoemaker is the first event of the seven-race ITU World Championship Series, which kicks off Sunday in Sydney. Nine Americans, including U.S. Olympians Laura Bennett, Hunter Kemper and Shoemaker, are on the start list. Look for a full preview on usatriathlon.org later this week.
Additionally, a handful of elites will be competing at the 2011 USA Triathlon Collegiate National Championship Saturday in Tuscaloosa, Ala.
