: I moved to Pekin in 1999. I started swimming for the local country
club when I was 8 years old (the summer after we moved) at the local
country club. I did many team sports until high school, but swim was
always my main sport. 2 years ago I picked up triathlons with the help
of Caoch Weinberg, my first one being the Dargon Triathlon (1.5 mile
swim, 20 mile bike, 4 mile run). After high school I plan to go to a
four year college for engineering and also swimming.
