Tempe, Ariz. is the home for one of the most unique and exciting triathlon events in the country, taking place April 5-6.
Over 1,200 collegiate and high school athletes will be vying for national titles at the 2019 USA Triathlon Collegiate Club and High School National Championships.
With more than 100 clubs competing, the storylines are endless. So, USA Triathlon put together a video of some of the biggest ones to get people excited for a thrilling couple of days of racing.
In addition to the intense competition among some of the best athletes in the country, the environment is what makes Collegiate Club and High School Nationals so special.
College students from around the country all converging in one place certainly creates for an entertaining mix of strong personalities and funny moments.
To capture some of that, USA Triathlon came up with a series of random and slightly ridiculous questions to ask athletes the day before the big race. Their answers did not disappoint.
