HUNTER KEMPER
U.S. Olympian (2000, 2004, 2008, 2012)
 


USA Triathlon Kids: Was the technology for triathlon different when you were a kid compared to what it is now?
 


Hunter Kemper: Tottally. There was no Instagram or Twitter, so you couldn't promote yourself. When I first started, they didn't have any power meters or similar devices. They didn't have all that bike technology that you can nowadays upload into TrainingPeaks. Technology has really changed the sport from taking videos of yourself to getting that instant information from power meters on bikes. And we didn't have a lot of triathlon clubs or teams, so you were pretty much on your own.
 


USAT: Which year of the Olympics do you consider your bet year?
 


HK: I was in four Olympics Games, and I'd say my best race out of the four would be the Beijing Olympics in 2018. I placed seventh, so it was my best placing. I was really feeling good the entire day, but the only reason I think I didn't do as well as I could, was because I had a sports injury going into race, so I wasn't at my ideal best.
 


USAT: What do you hope to do in the future?
 


HK: I'd love to produce and promote kid's events. I want them to be big, so maybe in the heart of New York City or at universities or like where the Giants and Jets play and build a pool right outside the stadium. That's my dream. I also want to promote kids' events because a majority of kids around the country aren't very fit because they are inside playing video games rather than being outside and working out or being active. I really want t support health and wellness in young kids.
