DELRAY BEACH, FL – November 12, 2015 – Lauren Goss concluded her 2015 race season with a win last weekend at Challenge Florida, bringing the total number of season wins to six. In addition to Challenge Florida, Lauren’s victories included IRONMAN 70.3 St. Croix, IRONMAN 70.3 Ecuador, IRONMAN 70.3 Silverman, Beijing International Tri and Challenge San Gil.

Complementing her impressive list of victories in 2015, Goss finished second at Escape from Alcatraz and the New York City Triathlon, for a total of eight podium finishes in nine races.

While Goss is known for her strength in all three disciplines, she closes with a swift run, recording the fastest pro women’s run four times this season. At Challenge San Gil, a division-best swim, bike, and run led to a new course record of 4:14:38.

As the 2010 Collegiate National Champion and 2010 USAT Under-23 Athlete of the Year, Lauren Goss has had a steady ascension through the sport. She looks to continue that in 2016 where she will focus on 70.3 distance triathlons.

Summarizing her incredible year, Goss shares, “As I reflect on this season I think back to the luck and opportunities I had that made 2015 possible. This season means so much more because of the challenges I went though in order to get to this point. Results don’t just come. It has taken patience, humility, luck, opportunity, dedication, hard work, and the support of others including my family, friends, and incredible sponsor partners.”
