Greg Bennett (USA)
How he qualified: NYC Qualifier
3rd at Boulder
2nd at NYC Tri
It’s hard to tell where Greg Bennett is in his training. He’s raced three ITU World Championship Series races, raced at altitude at the Boulder 5150 and then later caught a transatlantic red-eye to make it to the NYC Triathlon after cheering on his wife, Laura, in London. At age 39, Bennett might not have the firepower to take on this highly talented field, but it would be foolish to discount the most successful racer in the history of Olympic non-drafting.
