American triathlon's elder statesman Hunter Kemper qualified for his third straight Olympics this past weekend, fending off Andy Potts to place sixth and be the top American finisher at the Hy-Vee ITU Triathlon World Cup race in Des Moines, Iowa.

 

Kemper, who last year became the first triathlete to be featured on a Wheaties box , joins Jarrod Shoemaker and Matt Reed as the three Beijing-bound American male triathletes.

 

Sarah Haskins joins Laura Bennett and Julie Swail Ertel on the women's Olympic triathlon team. Haskins, who won the silver medal at the 2008 ITU World Championships in Vancouver in early June, finished sixth in Des Moines and punched her first Olympic ticket by beating Sarah Groff.

 

More race info can be found on the ITU website , including video wrap-ups of both men's and women's races (click here and then click on Hy-Vee in the list to the left of the video player).
