After this weekend, Verzbikas said he would give some thought to committing himself solely to running, as he is a highly touted triathlete. But for now, he said he would be gearing up for the World Junior Triathlon Championships. Only a freshman, Verzbikas has an extremely bright future ahead of him. -letsrun.com
MY COMMENT: Obviously this kid is a huge talent- the question is does he give up the triathlon to focus on running, or does he have more potential as a triathlete. Unfortunately, NCAA does not offer triathlon as a intercollegiate sport, and running could provide Lukas with a free college education.
Reminiscent of Lance Armstrong who also got his start as a top age group triathlete.
