About Omaha

Omaha is a national sports hub. The city hosts the College World Series annually since 1950, and hosted the USA Swimming Olympic Trials for the third time in the summer of 2016. Omaha has also hosted the U.S. Figure Skating Championships and most recently at the international level, the 2015 FIVB Women's Volleyball World Grand Prix Final Round.

OmahaOmaha is the heart of the country. You feel it the minute you arrive, and it stays with you long after you leave. The city is filled with surprising features, including the world’s largest indoor desert and the country’s largest indoor rainforest. Omaha is the only place where you can walk on “Bob,” a one-of-a-kind pedestrian bridge with a larger-than-life personality. The Nebraska/Iowa border runs right through Bob so you can actually stand in two states at the same time — it’s called “Bobbing” — trust us, it’s a thing.

Omaha offers a groundbreaking cultural scene, Smithsonian affiliated museums and a lively entertainment district filled with local restaurants, quirky boutiques, street musicians and great pubs. And any city worth its foodie reputation has a specialty, and Omaha’s lucky enough to have two. Best known for its legendary mouth-watering steaks, Omaha is also home to the Reuben sandwich — yep, it was invented here. Many have duplicated it, but you should always travel for the original.

Omaha is the center of the country making travel easy, and the airport is conveniently located close to Omaha’s vibrant downtown. Consistently ranked as a top value destination, Omaha is definitely worth the trip.

Team USA Qualification

Team USA

Standard-Distance Team USA

The 2017 USA Triathlon Olympic-Distance Age Group National Championships in Omaha, Nebraska will qualify athletes for the 2018 ITU Standard-Distance Triathlon World Championships in Gold Coast, Australia. After applying the age-up rule, the top 18 in each age group, rolling down to 25th place will qualify for the World Championship. The top 20 athletes per age group in the USA Triathlon annual rankings as of 12/31 will qualify for the world championship. The top 2 are offered a spot rolling down to 20th. 

Athletes must be present at the awards ceremony to accept their slot. Failure to accept your slot at the ceremony will result in a forfeiture of your slot.

Note: All spots offered via the rankings system are subject to spots being available on the roster

Sprint Team USA

The 2017 USA Triathlon Sprint-Distance Age Group National Championships in Omaha, Nebraska will qualify athletes for the 2018 ITU Draft-Legal Sprint-Distance World Championships in Gold Coast, Australia. The 2017 Age Group National Championships are not-draft legal, however, athletes will also have the additional opportunity to qualify through a separate Draft-Legal World Qualifier on October 7, 2017 in Sarasota, Fl. Six (6) spots per age group at the Age Group Sprint National Championships and twelve (12) spots per age group at the Draft-Legal Qualifier will be allocated to the World Championship. Click here for further details on qualification.

Team USA Age-Up Rule

At 2017 Nationals, athletes will race in their appropriate age groups based on their age as of Dec. 31, 2017. Awards will be issued based on those results. If an athlete "ages up" into another age group in 2018, a separate set of results will be issued accounting for those athletes who aged up and Team USA slots will be awarded based on these results. So their finish time will be compared to those athletes in the older age group. For example, if John Doe is going to be 49 years old by Dec. 31, 2017, he will age-up up into the 50-54 age group for the 2018 World Championships since he will be 50 years old by Dec. 31, 2018. Thus, for Team USA qualifying purposes, his time at the qualification event will be compared to the men currently in the 50-54 age group. We will post the age-up results at the awards ceremony.

Who can qualify for Team USA?

All athletes eligible to represent the United States must:

Be a U.S. citizen OR

Be a U.S. national – someone who has resided in the U.S. for three consecutive years and has not competed for their country of citizenship in the prior year.
Team USA eligible athletes must not have competed for their country of citizenship in the prior year. Athletes who choose to be recognized as nationals who have competed for their country of citizenship in the last year may get dispensation by obtaining a letter from the National Federation of their home country allowing competition as a USA athlete.
