The Dream Team Athens members received a special visit during one of their recent practices when USA Triathlon Southeast Junior Team Member, Cullen Goss, stopped by. Cullen, who is an Athens resident and a senior at Oconee County High School, is a member of the USAT southeast regional team and talked to our kids about draft legal versus non-drafting formats, balancing school and training, nutrition and recovery, how he started in triathlon, and where he plans to take triathlon in the future.
Cullen has had a remarkable first season with the southeast junior team and qualified for nationals in Virginia earlier this year. He is headed to the Junior Elite National Championships in West Chester, Ohio on August 3-4 to race against some of the best athletes in the nation.
Cullen is coached locally by Coach Harvey and TriCoachGeorgia and swims with Athens Bulldog Swim Club. His Regional Athlete Development Coordinator is Kathleen Johnston based out of Tennessee.
