"Joe Maloy, Greg Billington and Ben Kanute are the three men who will represent the United States in triathlon at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games in August. Each earned his first Olympic appearance through a rigorous selection process that concluded Saturday at the ITU World Triathlon Series race in Yokohama, Japan...
The youngest of the three Olympic triathletes at 23, Kanute jumped up to 43rd in the current WTS rankings after placing 17th in Yokohama, 1:25 off the winning time. He won the CAMTRI sprint race in Clermont, Florida, earlier this season and finished 11th at the New Plymouth, New Zealand, world cup event in April. The reigning U.S. national champion, he had a career-best silver-medal finish at the 2014 world cup race in Tongyeong. A two-time junior elite national champion (2008, 2010), he was the first U.S. triathlete to the tape at the 2015 ITU Grand Final in Chicago, finishing 20th, and closed out the 2015 season as the top-ranked American in the ITU World Triathlon Series."
