This woman is 45-years-old. She is also one of the favorites to WIN the 2009 USA Triathlon Age Group National Championship in Tuscaloose, AL on Saturday. No woman over the age of 40 has finished higher than 4th at Nationals--Washington's Tracy Orcutt in 2007 and Californian Holly Nybo in 2004.

We are predicting that Linda Robb of Juno Beach, Florida, will make history this weekend. Even if she doesn't win--MTN is unashamedly pulling for Apple Valley's Cathy Yndestad--we do not believe she will finish any lower than 3rd.

Linda Robb's Tri-creds:

* 1995 USAT Athlete of the Year * 2005 USAT Master of the Year * 4-time World Champion -1995, 1996, 2004, 2005 * 2 x National Champion * 5 x winner of St. Anthony's Triathlon * 2 x winner of NYC Triathlon * 2009 wins at St. Anthony's, New York City, Nautica Miami *
