RE: USA Triathlon is recruiting collegiate runners who can swim and is here to answer your questions (sponsored)
I ran in college, but slower than those times. My friend is a pro triathlete and I can destroy him in swimming workouts, I can swim with the best triathletes, something I didnt know until I picked up "hobby swimming" after college since I could swim on lunch break at work.
Too bad he absolutely crushes me in running and biking...
It is weird to me that you're recruiting runnings who can swim while runners who can bike seeks like a bigger priority. If you're rolling the dice with one of the three events, why roll the dice with the most important of the three? Get fast runners who are also fast cyclists and then put them with a good swimming coach to learn to be efficient. Some will end up being bad swimmers and no use to usat, but I bet you end up with a higher percentage of success stories than focusing on only runners who can already swim competitively.
