Featured Youth Ambassador: Gillian from Indiana!

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.
