Cadet Competes in Ironman Competition and Nominations Now Open for 2019 RMC Athletics Wall of Distinction

RMC Cadet competes in Ironman competition designed by US Navy SEALs

27734 NCdt Xuzhou Lin competed in Ironman 70.3 Superfrog in Imperial Beach, California, in San Diego County on Sept 16, 2018.

NCdt Lin finished 284th overall out of over 1000 participants, and 19th in his age category, with a total time of 5:54:01. This was the second Ironman 70.3 he has competed in.

“Crossing any finish line is always a euphoric experience as it’s the culmination of the all the dedication one has to put in in order to achieve their goal,” said NCdt Lin. “Triathlons have been my passion for the last two years, and I am excited to continue to compete in many more competitions in the years to come. ”

The Ironman 70.3 Superfrog was founded in 1979, and according to the race website, is the original and longest running half-distance race. The challenging course was designed by a group of Navy SEALS stationed at the US Navy SEALs center in Coronado to prepare them for the IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii and to enhance their training.

The race, now held just a few miles from its original spot, begins with a two-loop 1.2-mile swim in the open Pacific Ocean, followed by a four-loop, 56-mile bike course and a four-loop, 13.1-mile run along the beach.

Congratulations NCdt Lin!
