In last year's inaugural Women's Collegiate Triathlon National Championship, UCLA's Kelly Kosmo won by almost a minute. After coming in sixth in the swim, she made up ground on the bike and run and broke the tape with a big smile and her arms raised in victory.
Once she moved to the lead pack on the bike leg, she knew she had a chance.
"It ended up being a great race," she recalls. It also was an historic one.
Twenty-one athletes from schools across the nation competed in the first collegiate national triathlon championship held exclusively for women. The event came nearly 11 months after the NCAA designated triathlon as the next Emerging Sport for Women, putting it on a track toward possible official-sport status.
