Wheeling Native Kristen Hetzel Takes Bronze At Duathlon
Kristen Hetzel is on top of the world. Well, two steps back, actually. The Wheeling Central and Wheeling Jesuit graduate reached the podium at the recent ITU Duathlon World Championships in Pontevedra, Spain.
Hetzel finished third in her age division, her best finish since starting a string of eight consecutive appearances in the event.
“It feels incredible,” Hetzel said last week via telephone from Spain, where she was wrapping up a 10-day stay before heading back home to Santa Monica, Calif.
