Here’s a little bit about YoungTri Youth Ambassador Gillian from Indiana!
My name is Gillian Cridge. I am 12 years old and in 6th grade in Indianapolis, IN. I am on a local swim team and run track and cross country. I LOVE cross country. I started doing kids triathlons when I was 9 years old. There is a series in Indy called Kids Racing for Kids. I finally won the series this year for the first time. I have competed in 2 nationals cross country championships. This year I placed 50th out of over 400 runners in my age group in San Antonio with a 3k time of 11:29. I am super excited about this coming triathlon season. I have an awesome trainer Kyla Chapman. She is trying to go to the 2016 Olympics as a triathlete. I think more kids should get into the sport. Most of all I want to let other kids see how fun and far triathlons can get you. I also want to show them that it is a sport like any other.
Gillian rocks and we’re so happy to have her as a part of the YoungTri Ambassador Team!
