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.”
“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, LivingProtein, SuperEssentials 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.”
KC Craichy is Founder & CEO of Living Fuel. “We are so proud of Manny’s amazing accomplishment,” Craichy said after hearing about Huerta’s finish in San Diego. “Manny is a great Living Fuel Champion and we’re happy to help him Fuel his way to the 2012 Olympics in London!”
Huerta has an unusual training regimen that includes sleeping in an active volcano in Costa Rica. He works out in Cartago at almost 5,000 feet above sea level, then drives up to the volcano at about 7,000 feet to sleep. Huerta credits sleeping at the higher level with better performance.
“My hemoglobin and hematocrit levels get higher — those are the cells that carry oxygen to your body,” Huerta told reporters. “(Living at altitude helps) produce a better red blood cell.”
Manny Huerta was born in Cuba and emigrated to the United States with his family when he was 13. He became a U.S. citizen in 2000 and lives in Miami, Florida.
