COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.
— USA Triathlon and the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission today announced that University Hospitals will serve as the Official Medical Services Provider of the 2018 and 2019 USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships, both of which will be held in Cleveland.
The 2018 event is set for Aug. 11-12, with both Olympic and sprint-distance races taking place at Edgewater Beach Park and the surrounding neighborhoods of downtown Cleveland. The last time that Age Group Nationals, USA Triathlon’s largest and longest-running National Championship event, was held in Cleveland was in 1992.
“At all USA Triathlon National Championships, the health and safety of the athletes is our No. 1 priority — and we actively seek out the best possible medical care to provide on race day,” said Brian D’Amico, USA Triathlon Director of Events. “We have complete confidence in University Hospitals’ world-class team of sports medicine physicians and emergency medical professionals, and are proud to offer their services to the nation’s top age-group athletes as they chase national titles in 2018 and 2019.”
