How she Qualified: Invite

3rd at St. Anthony’s

There may be no one coming into Hy-Vee on a better string of results than Sarah Groff. Groff has primarily raced ITU this year and has finished in the top 10 an impressive four out of five times, securing an Olympic berth along the way. She has a real chance of winning it all at Hy-Vee. At her lone 5150 race, St. Anthony’s, she was third to Haskins and Blatchford but one would could expect Groff to perform at a higher potential with several more months of training and the focus of a large prize purse. Like other ITU racers, it’s all about the unfamiliar time trial and how much Groff takes out of her running legs to push the pace on the bike.
