Jarrod Shoemaker Finishes 18th

Great News Everyone!!!!

Fluid athlete Jarrod Shoemaker placed 18th at the Beijing Olympics today. While earning his top twenty finish, Shoemaker was also the second American to finish behind Hunter Kemper who placed seventh. Jarrod finished with an overall time of 1:50:46 which was only two minutes behind Gold Medal Winner, Germany's Jan Frodeno. Jarrod's time splits were; Swim: 18:19 Bike 58:47 Run 32:27.

We at Fluid could not be more proud of our elite athlete Jarrod Shoemaker. While showing his grit and determination on such a global scale, we can truly see that all of Jarrod's hard work has paid off. Only being 25 years old, gives the impression that this is the only the beginning for Jarrod and we look to be in his corner along the way.

Great job Jarrod, we are sure that all of your friends and family are as proud of you as we all are!

Thank you for being a part of Team Fluid!
