Rita Johnson ’18 discovered her passion for triathlon just two years ago but has quickly advanced to the international level. She will represent Team USA at this year’s ITU World Championship in Australia.
UPDATE: At the World Championship in Gold Coast, Australia, Rita placed 15th overall for her age group, with the 4th fastest swim time and the 8th fastest run time.
