Tune to the Team Psycho Facebook page at 8 pm EST on Monday, Dec. 2.
Renee Tomlin, an elite triathlete who is sponsored by Team Psycho through the Elite Development Program (EDP), will be doing a Facebook Live event tonight at 8 pm EST in which she will discuss her recent diagnosis and treatment for External Iliac Artery syndrome (EAI).
Although EAI is not well-known among the general triathlon and cycling communities, a small percentage of these athletes will develop it so awareness is key. Renee started out in USA Triathlon’s Collegiate Recruitment Program and has gone on to win several World Cup races as well as placed in the top 5 of World Triathlon Series (WTS) races. Although she has battled injuries for the past 2 years, Renee has her sights set on vying for a spot on the US Olympic team in 2020.
