A silver medalist at the 2011 Pan American Games, Huerta was named USA Triathlon's Olympic/ITU Athlete of the Year last season. He was the top American finisher - coming in 25th - at the 2011 World Cup event held on the same London course the Olympians will tackle this summer. A native of Cuba, Huerta moved to the United States with his family at age 13 and soon became a standout cross-country runner at Florida Atlantic University.
