Saturday, July 12 will be a busy day for the 2008 U.S. Olympic Triathlon Team. All six team members, as well as the two alternates, will be in action as they prepare for Beijing.

Hunter Kemper, Matt Reed, Laura Bennett, and Sarah Haskins Kortuem, as well as alternates Andy Potts and Becky Lavelle, are set to race at the Life Time Fitness Triathlon in Minneapolis, Minn.

Julie Swail Ertel and Jarrod Shoemaker will be racing at the Musselman Triathlon, an ITU Continental Cup event that is also the third race in the USAT Haul to the Great Wall Elite Series.

The events will serve as the final tune-up races for most of the athletes as they prep for the Olympic Games in Beijing, China, which are a little more than a month away.
