Manny Huerta Qualifies For The 2012 Olympic Games In London This Summer By Placing Among Top Finishers At Last Saturday’s ITU World Triathlon Event In San Diego.

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) May 17, 2012

Manuel Huerta and Hunter Kemper won spots on the 2012 U.S. Olympic Triathlon Team in San Diego Saturday. Huerta placed 9th in the 1,500-meter swim, 40-kilometer bike ride, and 10-kilometer run course. Kemper, who has competed in three previous Olympic games, finished 5th.

Manny Huerta was born in Cuba and moved with his family to the United States at the age of 13. It has been an emotional race season for Huerta. “Today is Mother’s Day weekend so this is the best gift I can give her — that I didn’t give up on my fight, on my dream. [so she doesn’t give up] on her fight with cancer,” Huerta told reporters at Saturday’s event. “All those things have been on my mind, affecting me a little bit. Hopefully she’ll be in London as well watching me from the stands.”

Huerta is also a Living Fuel champion and depends on the nutritional power of LivingFuel products to give him everything his body needs to excel during training and racing.

“Living Fuel has made a huge difference in fueling me to win a place on the Olympic Triathlon Team,” Huerta said. “I am depending on SuperBerry Ultimate,LivingProteinSuperEssentials Aminos and all of the other amazing Living Fuel products to prepare me to do my very best at the Olympics in London this summer.”
