OAM NOW / AM’s Torres One Step Closer to the 2015 Rio Olympic Dream

April 16th, 2014 by Cheryl Sherwood

10015642_10153953724670006_158679333_nRaquel Torres has been training hard and making great progress toward reaching her dream goal of qualifying for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games for her home country of the Dominican Republic.

With this being her first real full season back to competition since her teenage years, Raquel is gaining qualifying points and confidence as she gets more international races under her belt.

She’s cracked the top 10 in all 3 of her ITU races in the start of this season, with a 4th place in Chile on March 30th, just 3 minutes off the podium.

Raquel is staying in South America for a few more races in April before returning home to Kalamazoo to her very supportive husband and adorable daughter.

Stay tuned for more race updates throughout April and the year as her quest to Rio continues…
