Her awesome finish time of 2:00:11 in the 1500-meter swim, 40-kilometer bike and 10-kilometer run means that she claimed the final olympic spot on the US Womens Triathlon team and will join Sarah Groff and Gwen Jorgenson in London. This will be her second trip to the Olympic games – Laura placed 4th at the Beijing Olympics. Watch the USA Triathlon YouTube interview to hear more about the race:
From sandiego.tritahlon.org: “Sarah [Haskins] and I had to be in the top nine, so it was kind of important that we all worked together on the bike and then we could fight it out at the end, and we did so,” Bennett said.

On behalf of everyone here at Core Power, and all of your fans out there: CONGRATULATIONS LAURA! We’re honored to be your high protein recovery drink and part of your training, and wish you the best of luck as you prepare to head off and represent the USA in London!
