Lawyer Landau, just returned from the USAT Age Group National Championships in Cleveland, Ohio, has competed at prior spring Duathlon World Championships in Adelaide Australia and Penticton, Canada. Landau focuses his athletic training on sprint triathlon, which require athletes to swim, bike and then run, as well as duathlons, which usually follow a “run-bike-run” format.
As a member of TeamUSA at the Maccabiah Games in Israel, Landau was the only gold medalist for the United States in Triathlon. Recently, he won his age group at the USAT Mid-Atlantic Spring Triathlon Championships in Bear, Delaware. He was also an age group winner at the 2019 Maryland Spring Duathlon and the New York City Central Park Duathlon, each by over a mile!
Our disabled clients and their families will come and cheer me on at races, and in some way, I feel as though I am running and racing for them.” Landau’s Fall multisport calendar includes races at the Quantico Marine Corps Base, Bethany Beach in Delaware, Lake Anna, Williamsburg, Spotsylvania and Rock Hall, Maryland.
