Nathan LaFrance took 2nd at the USA Triathlon Youth AG National Championships!  The event took place in Westchester, OH on Aug 4th, 2013 and was part of USA Triathlons Largest Ever Youth and Junior Championships weekend.    And that meant some serious competition for Nathan.   Nathan spoke with his Peaks coach, Karen Mackin before the event and said he thought it would be a really close race, he explained there were some really fast guys doing the race.  So, he was very pleased to come in 2nd place (only 12seconds) behind the leader.   Nathan sported some pretty fast splits!   He finished the 200m Open water swim in 3:09, the 10k Bike in 16:38 (without aerobars, as they are not legal in the Youth AG event).  He finished up the race with a 5:40min/mi in the 2k run.   These times are lightning fast and believe it or not, they include the transition times!   Way to go Nathan!
