Hello World

Welcome to the website for Team IE Elite.  Current members include Lauren Goss from Charleston, South Carolina and Kaleb VanOrt from Waterloo, Indiana.  Lauren is a fifth year senior at Clemson University, finishing up her last semester.  She got started in triathlons about a year ago and has quickly become one of the best U23 triathletes in the nation.  Kaleb graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2006 and now resides in South Bend, IN, where he trains with Innovative Endurance head coach, Greg Mueller, and other Team IE athletes.  He got his start in triathlons about  2 years ago and has become one of the best amateur triathletes in the nation.  Both athletes will be chasing ITU points next year, in hopes of becoming a USAT funded Project 2016 Athlete, and one day maybe even representing the United States of America at the Olympic Games.  Lauren just missed a place on Project 2016 on September 11 in Budapest, Hungary.  With rainy conditions she was unable to take on calories on the bike and fell 4 places short of the top15 - automatic spot on Project 2016.  Still placing a very respectable 19th at the U23 World Championships.

Check back periodically for race recaps, training updates, and general happenings of Team IE Elite.  Hopefully you enjoy following these gifted athletes as they enjoy the highs and endure the lows in this amazing, sometimes crazy sport of Triathlons.
