Jennifer Scudiero just raced the 2013 ITU Duathlon World Championship in Ottawa Canada yesterday. Jenn is a native of the metro area and currently resides with her family in Eagan, MN. She's been tearing it up at local races, and set 2 course records locally already this year.
The ITU Duathlon World Championship consists of a 10K run, a 40K bike, and a 5K run. Scudiero finished 5th in her age group and 13th overall in 2:14:15. She had the 8th fastest first run, and the powered past a number of athletes to post the fastest bike split in her age group! At that point, she'd moved into about 4th in her age group. She closed with a 22 minute 5K which earned her 5th in the 30-34 female age group.
Her husband Tony was there to catch all the action with his camera. Check out his slideshow of Jenn before and during the race in this article.
Post-race, Jenn posted the following on Facebook: "Turns out my age category was the most competitive today. With that, I'm proud to say I placed 5th in my age category, 13th overall female and had the second fastest female bike split of the day. Team USA is also taking home many medals today!!! So proud to be a part of it all!!"
