Good for her for setting new goals and pushing herself. And it looks like she is headed in the right direction. Groff is displaying strong early season form with her second podium finish.
In the Clermont ITU Pan American Cup, Groff was among a lead group of four, including American Sara McLarty (Clermont, Fla.), out of the water and rode with the leaders throughout the 20k bike. She posted the day’s fastest 5k split (17:43) en route to a six-second victory over Frederiksen.
We are rooting for the triathlete to meet her own high expectations of getting back to the Olympics and making it on the podium next time.
