Victoria's McCartney came back from being sidelined for the entire 2008 season to finish as the third U23 at PATCO. He followed up with two top 10's at ITU Austin (ninth) and ITU Coteau du Lac (10th). He took the $5,000 swim prime against a world class field at the Hy-Vee World Cup, and his season took off from there. Andrew earned his first Continental Cup podium in San Francisco, finishing second to Simon Whitfield, followed by a commanding win as U23 National Champion (and fifth overall) in Kelowna. He then put his world class swim to work at the Grand Final to establish a good position on the bike and finish 15th, equaling his best ever world championship performance. After an injury-plagued 2008, Andrew served notice that he's back and ready to take on the world.
Training Update comming soon.
Ciao for now,
