Vote below in the Elite Eight of the #TriWeek Triathlon Tournament. 

Just two moments remain in each of the four regions on the #TriWeek Triathlon Tournament Bracket. We now move on to the Elite Eight in our quest to determine the greatest U.S. triathlon moment of all time. 

The four No. 1 seeds are still alive, as all the favorites look for one more victory to advance to the Final Four. 

In the Swim Region, Gwen Jorgensen's '16 Olympic Gold Medal continued its dominance in the Sweet 16, earning an incredible 87 percent of the vote to set up a matchup against the First IRONMAN in '78. 

The Birth of Triathlon in '74 escaped with a narrow victory over Katie Zaferes' '19 ITU world Title, setting up an intriguing Elite Eight Matchup with the No. 2 seed in the Bike Region: the '16 U.S. Paralympic Sweep. 

The impressive run for Max Fennell Becoming the First Black Professional Triathlete continued, as the No. 7 seed moved on to the Elite Eight with another upset victory, beating "Gwensanity" Historic Win Streak with 63 percent of the vote. Now, what many are calling the tournament favorite awaits in the Run Region Final, in Julie Moss' '82 IRONMAN World Championship Crawl. 

Dave Scott and Mark Allen's iconic '89 Iron War will go up against triathlon's '00 Sydney Olympic Debut in the Transition Region for the final spot in the Final Four. 

We started with 40 of the greatest moments in U.S. triathlon history. Now, it's up to you to decide the best of the best in every region.
