Mallow Junior/U23 National Team

The Mallow Junior/U23 National Team is a new men’s and women’s high performance developmental team named after USA Triathlon Foundation donors Audra and Michael Mallow (Pacific Palisades, Calif.).

The Mallow Junior/U23 National Team will include male and female U.S. junior and U23 athletes who will be supported with travel funding to race at Continental Cups and international World Triathlon events, state of the art racing and training equipment, stipends for personal coaching and access to training, tactical and technique camps.

The team will be led and supported by USA Triathlon High Performance staff at training camps and international competitions, where they will hone their craft against the best Junior and U23 athletes from around the world. The Mallow Junior/U23 National Team will be another team under the USA Triathlon’s Olympic and Paralympic High Performance Elite Development Program, which includes Project Podium, the Elite Paratriathlon Resident Team, Collegiate Recruitment Program and Talent Identification (TID) programs.
